Abstract
Guinaw Rails South is situated in the Dakar region in Senegal and is constantly exposed to dangers such as floods, insecurity and diseases. This study shows that people live in this high-risk informal settlement because of four main reasons. Those are family, economic situation, own house and work or education. The study was conducted with a Grounded theory approach and based on interviews with people living in the area.
