Southern Voice Measuring Post-2015 Sustainable Development in Senegal Phase II Follow-up Study

This report recommends, through an inclusive plan of action, concrete proposals that are consistent with national needs yet responsive to international challenges. A first recommendation is to ensure a strong political leadership and commitment from key decision-makers. This will facilitate a good ownership of the SDGs, and therefore their alignment with the Senegal’s new economic and social policy framework. Another recommendation is to establish efficient SDG monitoring and evaluation mechanisms, through an operationalisation of the Harmonised Monitoring-Evaluation Framework; bringing together the monitoring of SDG indicators and PSE indicators. In addition, capacity should be built for ensuring the production of quality data on SDGs, by deepening the present work on mapping data sources during the Data Test study. A key recommendation is to promote the domestic resource mobilisation, through the development of public-private partnership or the creation of an annual budget line dedicated to the production of sectorial statistics. Finally, an effective communication is required on SDGs and their data-related needs in order to develop a strong sense of national ownership.

A New Trans-Disciplinary Approach to Regional Integrated Assessment of Climate Impact and Adaptation in Agricultural Systems

The mission of AGMIP is to provide effective science-based agricultural decision-making models and assessments of climate variability and change and sustainable farming systems to achieve local-to-global food security. The presentation starts with a brief discussion on AGMIP's (the agricultural model inter comparison and improvement project) 3 focus areas : i.e. Modelling for sustainable farming areas & coordinated global and regional agricultural assessments & next generation knowledge products, improved models and data. The current activities is discussed next, which includes : Key interactions like water resources, livestock, pastures, soils and crop rotation, pests and diseases. The following discussion is on AGMIP's 5 attributes in regional integrated assessments: i.e. Farming systems (1) Trans disciplinary: climate/ biophysical/ socio-economic (2) Multi-scale: field, farm, region, global data and models. (3) Multiple climate and crop models (4) Distributional results: impacts on poverty. The following discussion is about the key features of AGMIP’s RIA approach. 1)a Protocol-based approach - which is rigorously documented so results can be replicated and inter-compared, and methods improved. 2) Participatory, i.e. the identification of impact indicators, choice of key systems, adaptations, design of future pathways and scenarios used. 3) a trans-disciplinary, systems-based approach which must include key features of current and possible future systems, including multiple crops, inter-crops, livestock, and non-agricultural sources of income. 4) Heterogeneity, which must account for the diversity of systems, and the widely varying bio-physical and socio-economic conditions. 5) Vulnerability - it should be possible to characterize the impacts on those farm households that are adversely impacted by climate change, as well as those that benefit from climate change.

Contrat - Cadre Beneficiaires 2013 – Lot N°1 : Developpement Rural et Securite Alimentaire - Analyse d'économie Politique (PEA) des Filières de l'Arachide et du Riz au Sénégal Rapport final – Mai 2016 / Contract regarding Beneficiaries Framework for 2013 - Set No 1: Rural Development and Food Security - Analysis of the Political Economy (PEA) of Value Chains of Groundnuts and Rice in Senegal - Final Report - May 2016

This report is based on the assumption that the European Union, and other technical and financial partners (TFP), are committed to support the government of Senegal in its efforts to achieve the objectives that it has set in its Program in order to accelerate the Pace of Senegalese Agriculture (PRACAS) in the areas of rice and peanut production. These two sectors have already been the subject of several technical studies, the present study refers rather to the political and economic aspects, and in particular the open or obscure issues that determine the degree of feasibility of the technical solutions proposed here and elsewhere. This study was carried out at the beginning of the year 2016, two years after the design of the PRACAS, and less than two years before the 2017 deadline set for self-sufficiency in rice production and a million tons of groundnuts per year./ Ce rapport est basé sur l’hypothèse que l’Union Européenne, et d’autres partenaires techniques et financiers (PTF), s’engagent à accompagner le gouvernement du Sénégal dans ses efforts pour atteindre les objectifs qu’il a fixés dans son Programme d’Accélération de la Cadence de l’Agriculture Sénégalaise (PRACAS) dans les filières riz et arachide. Ces deux filières ayant déjà fait l’objet de plusieurs études techniques, la présente étude vise plutôt les aspects politiques et économiques, et en particulier les enjeux ouverts ou obscurs qui déterminent le degré de la faisabilité des solutions techniques proposées ici et ailleurs. Cette étude est réalisée au début de l’année 2016, deux ans après la conception du PRACAS, et moins de deux ans avant la date limite (2017) fixée pour l’autosuffisance en riz et la production d’un million de tonnes d’arachide par an.

Identification des Possibilités d’appui aux Filières de Commercialisation Porteuses / Identifying Opportunities to Support Promising Marketing Channels

The study of identifying opportunities to support the promising business sectors fits in the process of preparation of the 11th EDF interventions in Senegal. In accordance with the terms of reference, this study was conducted in two phases, each phase concluding with the preparation of a report for work performed. Phase 1 of the study permitted the analyzing of the main characteristics, the potential, the issues of improvement and issues for 15 agricultural sectors and farming pre-screened by the first Steering Committee of the study. From a set of evaluation criteria (macro-economic interest, social interest and interest from the point of view of food and nutrition security), the Consultant proposed, in the first phase report, a selection of 5 most promising sectors (rice, corn, onion, banana, milk) to study further in the next phase. This choice has been validated by the Steering Committee of the study./ L’étude d’identification des possibilités d’appui aux filières commerciales porteuses s’inscrit dans le processus de préparation des interventions du 11ème FED au Sénégal. Conformément aux termes de références, cette étude a été menée en deux phases, chaque phase se concluant par l’élaboration d’un rapport correspondant au travail effectué. La phase 1 de l’étude a permis d’analyser les principales caractéristiques, le potentiel, les problématiques d’amélioration et enjeux pour 15 filières agricoles et d’élevage présélectionnées par le premier Comité de Pilotage de l’étude. A partir d’un ensemble de critères d’évaluation (intérêt macro-économique, intérêt social et intérêt du point de vue de la sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle), le Consultant a proposé, dans le rapport de première phase, une sélection de 5 filières les plus porteuses (riz, maïs, oignon, banane, lait) à étudier de façon approfondie au cours de la phase suivante. Ce choix a été validé par le Comité de Pilotage de l’étude.
