The country owes its name to the river which borders it to the east and north and which has its source in the Fouta-Djallon in Guinea. The climate is tropical and dry with two seasons: the dry season and the rainy season.
Senegal is part of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). Since April 2, 2012, the country's president is Macky Sall.
