The goal of the project is to support the Government of Senegal in carrying out the Plan Sénégal Émergent, the national social and economic development strategy, which aims to make Senegal an emerging country by 2035. In accordance with the Plan Sénégal Émergent, Canada supports Senegal’s reform efforts, which will improve government performance, specifically, financial administration and the governance of various sectors that are vital to the country’s growth, including agriculture, nutrition and extractive resources. Activities under the project include (1) support for the Senegalese government to develop and implement public policies, streamlined processes and tax incentives to stimulate growth in the agricultural and extractive sectors; (2) development and implementation of a national strategy to promote food security and nutrition; (3) development of instruments to effectively manage public spending; and (4) technical assistance in the form of advice, training and equipment for government employees. As with all budget support initiatives, Canada works in close cooperation with other donors and the Senegalese government to promote the accountability, transparency and effectiveness of national systems, to increase donor coordination and harmonization and to strengthen mutual accountability. This type of support also favours greater policy dialogue among donors, the government and partners, which in turn strengthens efforts to provide focused and effective aid, and to obtain long-term development results. Continuous monitoring and evaluation of this project is undertaken together with other donors.
