Abstract:Senegal has a long cultural tradition of solidarity and sharing, which is even reflected in its name. `Senegal', although said to be derived from the Portuguese explorers of the 15th century, was taken up in the indigenous Wolof language as `Sunugal', which means `our boat'. Even today, this boat metaphor is frequently invoked by politicians and opinion formers as a call to unity and working together, to keep the country `afloat'.

- The World Guide to CSR: A Country-by-Country Analysis of Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility
The World Guide to CSR is the first book to provide comparable national profiles that describe the evolution and practice of Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility (CSR) for 58 countries and 5 global regions. Each regional and national profile includes key information about the relevant CSR history, country-specific issues, trends, research and leading organisations. The purpose of the book is to give CSR professionals (including managers, consultants, academics and NGOs focusing on the social, environmental and ethical responsibilities of business) a quick reference guide to CSR in different regional and national contexts. This unique resource will be an essential acquisition for all organisations who need to benchmark their CSR strategies throughout different regions and cultures and want the best possible intelligence on the key issues and concerns relating to corporate social responsibility in all of the markets in which they operate.
