Our Joint Programmes
Promoting Initiatives and Cultural Industries in Senegal
The goal of this Joint Programme is to support Senegal in implementing national policies aimed at promoting culture as an engine of sustainable human development, with a focus on vulnerable groups such as women and young people.
Preventing and managing child malnutrition in highly vulnerable regions
Persistent drought and the rise in food prices have taken a heavy toll in Senegal: more than two million people lack food security and nearly one in five children under the age of 5 is stunted. The Joint Programme's objective is to lower the acute malnutrition rate of children in the five most affected regions to below the international emergency level of 10%.
Expanding access to environmental finance - Reversing the decline in forest ecosystem services
The Joint Programme's aim is to reverse the decline in Senegal's forest ecosystems and to encourage the sustainable use of forest ecosystem services in order to improve livelihoods for vulnerable groups in those areas. This approach is being complemented by national and local research on population mobility and ecosystem and climate changes in Senegal.
