Senegal is committed to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and to the measurement and monitoring of progress towards the goals and targets. Sustainable Development Goal two (SDG2) manifests the prominence of food security and nutrition in the Agenda, aiming to “End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture” by 2030. WFP Senegal has aligned its objectives with the Sustainable Development Goals, prioritizing emergency lifesaving and development work that benefits the poorest and most vulnerable people. WFP foresees a hunger free Senegal, in which poor and food insecure household have access to adequate nutritious food all year around; and vulnerable populations are resilient to shocks and can rely on integrated sustainable food systems. Within the context of the Integrated Road Map for achieving Zero Hunger by 2030, WFP Senegal is currently implementing a new Country Strategic Plan (CSP 2019-2023) which defines WFP’s portfolio of assistance and contributions to the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF 20192023) as well as the national economic growth programme (Plan Senegal Emergent), and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Within the framework of the CSP, WFP Senegal will focus on a gender-transformative and adaptive social protection and resilience programmes aimed at ensuring that foodinsecure populations, including school-aged children, have access to adequate food and improved nutritional status all year all year; and food-insecure populations and communities exposed to climatic shocks and other risks have resilient livelihoods and sustainable food systems all year round. In so doing, WFP will also ensure that national and local institutions have strengthened capacities to manage food and nutrition security, social protection and resilience-building programmes. The R4 Rural Resilience Initiative is WFP innovative programme which enables vulnerable rural households to improve their food and income security in the face of increasing climate risks. The Initiative is built on an innovative model that combines four risk management strategies: Risk Reduction, Risk Transfer, Prudent Risk Taking, and Risk Reserves.

The MCF Young Africa has provided the WFP with funds to implement in resilience project. The aim of the MCF Young Africa Works strategy is to drive systemic change in financial inclusion and education and thus increase youth employment and reduce poverty. It seeks to address the mismatch between the skills of young people entering the workforce and the needs of employers, promoting stable employment based on innovation and entrepreneurship as a pathway out of poverty. Recognizing the diversity of needs and opportunities for young people aged 12-35, the Foundation supports programmes that are appropriately tailored to their life situations. The MCF Rural and Agricultural Finance strategy is promoting financial inclusion for smallholder farmers, including access to saving accounts, credit, and insurance, and enable them to better manage agricultural risk.
