DAKAR – In response to needs identified by the Government of Senegal and its partners, and in line with the United Nations Strategic Response Plan, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is providing $4 million (1.9 billion francs CFA) to assist the most food insecure in Senegal who have suffered from the effects of a poor agricultural campaign in 2013-2014.
Senegalese Budget Minister Mouhamadou Makhtar Cissé lauded “exceptional” U.S. development assistance to Senegal at the 2013 Joint Portfolio Review with USAID held in Dakar.
The meeting was co-presided by U.S. Chargé d’affaires Sandra Clark and Minister Cissé, who noted that U.S. support for Senegal has increased significantly, from over $24.5 million in 2001 to more than $111 million last year.
“The contribution of the United States of America is much appreciated – and even exceptional for a bilateral partnership in the implementation of Plan Sénégal Émergent,” Minister Cissé said, referring to Senegal’s ambitious new economic growth strategy.
