Evaluation of CIDA's Senegal Program from 2001 to 2010

CIDA's programming in Senegal was implemented in an evolving context that included the adoption of new priorities at the Agency, the introduction of the aid effectiveness principles and the program-based approach, and the selection of Senegal as a country of focus.

CIDA established a 10-year program, allowing continuity in pursuing the main priorities identified, that is, education, grassroots economy and governance.

The program addressed relevant needs and achieved good results. For example, in education, more than 260 inspectors, 8,000 teachers, 13,000 volunteers and 12 supervisors were trained, while 687 adults received training as craftspersons. In grassroots economy, achievements included improved productivity and performance in the agro-food sector and the creation of 129 micro businesses, generating 1,487 permanent jobs.
