In 2015 we conducted a detailed review of social investment opportunities and potential partners in Senegal to inform our approach. This included extensive engagement with NGOs, civil society and government bodies to understand concerns and identify development priorities. Based on information gathered from fishermen and their families during the consultation process for the ESIA, Kosmos worked with seven artisanal fishing associations known as the Conseils Locaux de PĂȘche Artisanale to develop a novel and sustainable program that improves safety and protects livelihoods. Kosmos provided global positioning systems, solar lamps that illuminate night fishing and serve as distress beacons, and life vests to the fishing associations. The associations are now selling the equipment to their members at a subsidized price. The revenue generated can then be used by the associations to: >  invest in more equipment thereby creating a virtuous cycle of safety consciousness >  invest in the fishing associations’ social funds, which provide a safety net for fishermen and their families who have suffered work-related accidents resulting in disability or loss of their equipment, and >  invest in capacity building programs for association members who seek to improve their livelihoods. Decisions regarding the use and disbursement of funds are made locally by the multi-stakeholder group that manages the associations. Our expanded social investment program in Senegal in the coming years will continue to emphasize coastal and fishing communities. A fisherman from Lompoul wears one of the life vests donated by Kosmos to his artisanal fishing association. Kosmos provided GPS systems, like the one pictured above, as well as other safety gear to fishing associations in northern Senegal. 26 26
