The Senegal-Belgium 2019-2023 cooperation agreement aims to assist Senegal’s socio-economic development and environmental stability, while working actively for equal rights and equal opportunities for the people of the Sine-Saloum region.
Our health programme focuses on three areas: improving access to information, training and education on sexual and reproductive health; prevent gender-based violence and care for its victims; and the provision of high-quality sexual and reproductive health services.
Enabel supports the development of a modern, competitive and sustainable agro-industrial infrastructure in Sine-Saloum, and aims to strengthen the financial, technical, human and social capital of small and medium-sized businesses.
Enabel aims to upskill everyone involved in its projects or in partner organisations with their digital and management skills. This way stakeholders in the programme will master the available resources and digital tools effectively.
From 2012 to 2017, the Belgian governmental cooperation and the Senegalese authorities implemented a € 17 million project to support offer and demand of health services aimed at organising health insurance for the rural poor. Read the reflection paper.
