A map showing land grab in Senegal by sector. This map is very similar to that described in Figure 2, and the cities and regions described are the same. On this map, there are green circles showing land grab by the agriculture sector, yellow circles showing biofuels land grab, and purple circles showing tourism land grab. The overall impression from the map is that the majority of the land grab has been by agriculture in the Saint-Louis region in the north.

In this description the circles of land grab are described in rough size order within their sector categories.

Land grab by agriculture: very large circle in the Saint-Louis region, west of Saint-Louis. Smaller circles appear around and to the north west of Thies; south of Saint-Louis; east of Diourbel; north of Kolda and north of Ziguinchor.

Land grab by biofuels: large circle between the Saint-Louis and Louga regions. Smaller circles appear north east of Kolda; north east of Thies; north of Tambacounda, and immediately south west of Fatick.

Land grab by tourism: one large circle north of Kedougou in the south west.
