The United States government, through the U.S. Agency for development (USAID), has launched a new project to be implemented under the global Feed the Future initiative.  The four year, $24 million project, called Feed the Future Senegal Naatal Mbay, is the successor to the successful Economic Growth Project (USAID/PCE), which worked since 2009 to improve agricultural performance by small producers.

USAID/PCE, which achieved outstanding results through innovations such as an inclusive private sector-driven value chain approach, will be strengthened and replicated on a large scale under Naatal Mbay, which mean “prosperous agriculture” in Wolof, a national language in Senegal.

For six years, USAID/PCE supported small producers of the rice, maize and millet agricultural zones in the north, center, and south of Senegal to increase productivity and competitiveness while encouraging the private sector to partner with organized producers’ groups in the cereal sector.   

Successes of the value chain approach have included:

Senegal has a reputation of being one of the few stable democracies in West Africa. This perception was confirmed by the recent 2012 elections marked by the third peaceful transition of power from one president to the other – two of which took place following credible democratic elections.
