In Senegal land planning the territory amounts to geographic planning together with economic planning and sociological planning. Land planning forms part of the total effort of development of the four year plans. This does not mean merely the attainment of social and economic objectives within the territory, but an original element based on a particular conception held by the leaders of the country, as to what the distribution of future population in Senegal should be, of its activities within Senegal and as to the location of cities and villages, as to the style of the communities and the shape of the scenery, in other words, as self-willed geography of Senegal in the year 2000.This autonomy in projection does not exclude interdependence in prospective, which is altogether economic, social and geographic: the executory parts of the successive plans result of these three approaches, and also of synthesis and arbitration. This explains perhaps why material realizations are the outcome of compromise and why, the urbanest must be at the same time a sociologist and an economist in order to work usefully.
