Joint Programme for the Sahel in Response to the Challenges of COVID-19, Conflict and Climate Change (SD3C-SEN)
The Joint Programme for the Sahel in Response to the Challenges of COVID-19, Conflict and Climate Change (SD3C) in the Sahel and Senegal aims to consolidate the livelihoods of small producers, in particular women and youth living in cross-border areas of the six targeted countries. It is implemented in partnership with the two other United Nations Rome-based agencies – the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) – and the G5 Sahel. It seeks to address the trilogy of challenges posed by COVID-19, conflict and climate change in the Sahel. The programme covers six years into two phase (phase 1: 2021-2023 and phase2: 2024-2026). The programme in Senegal will reach a total of 18,000 agro-pastoral households over the 6 years for a total representing 180,000 people, with at least 50 per cent Women and 40 per cent of young people aged 18 to 40.
Some expected outcomes of SD3C in Senegal are:
- 7,000 producers reporting access to relevant information on existing markets and opportunities.
- 4,000 producers have access to production factors and resilient technology packages and practices.
- 3,000 ha of lands will be rehabilitated and developed.
- 18 pastoral infrastructures are developed/rehabilitated.
- 6 market infrastructures built/rehabilitated and functional.
- digital financial services with the aim of securing border transactions are improved.
