The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data supports country partners at the national and sub-national levels in Senegal to develop and implement whole-of-government, multi-stakeholder data roadmaps for sustainable development.

Senegal’s Emerging Plan (PSE) has positioned agriculture as a key driver to its ambitious, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth. At the High-Level Meeting on Data for Development in Africa in June 2017, the Government of Senegal announced new initiatives including the mapping of farms, collecting and using comprehensive agriculture statistics, and incorporating satellite data from NASA. The Government of Senegal, through its central statistical office, Agence Nationale de la Statistique et de la Démographie (ANSD), working closely with Initiative Prospective Agricole et Rurale (IPAR), who are supported by the Hewlett Foundation, will work with farmers and producers’ associations to fill data gaps about Senegal’s farmers, share data with them, and develop a comprehensive understanding of this key industry.

There are a number of other data innovation activities currently supporting sustainable development in Senegal. See below for blogs, partner activities, initiatives, and resources related to sustainable development data in Senegal.
