General budget support and technical assistance for the Plan Sénégal Émergent [emerging Senegal plan]
$70 million (2015 to 2020)
Partner: Government of Senegal
The project helps the Government of Senegal implement its emerging Senegal plan, the national strategy for economic and social development, whose objective is to position Senegal as an emerging country by 2035. Thanks to a general budget support initiative valued at $50 million, the Government of Canada is helping the Government of Senegal implement structural reforms in key sectors for the country’s growth, namely agriculture, nutrition, the mining sector and the management of public finances. The sum of $20 million will be earmarked for technical assistance to go along with the budgetary support with a view to building the capacities of the Senegalese government by targeting improved management, planning, monitoring and assessment of internal controls and auditing. This funding will also provide technical expertise to support the development and implementation of sectoral policies and programs.
