Sewerage coverage in Dakar (2.7 million people) is high by comparison with most African cities, with an extensive sewerage system that covers significant areas of the city, although with currently limited coverage of lowerincome districts; however, the majority of households use on-site sanitation, notably pour-flush latrines discharging to septic tanks or pits.

30 people attended a side-event at AfricaSan4 (Dakar, Senegal) in May 2015, where the SFD tool was presented.
