About the Senegal Country Platform

In Senegal, the entry themes of the PROFEIS (Promoting Farmer Experimentation and Innovation in the Sahel) initiative differ according to region: (1) Kaolack and Fatick Regions: Conservation and regeneration of natural resources (soil and water) in millet- and peanut-dominated farming systems; (2) Thiès and Diourbel Regions: Enhancing the value of indigenous woody species in the agroforestry systems of the peanut basin.

Soil fertility is a cross-cutting theme, because it an essential condition for the success of innovation on conservation and regeneration of natural resources and for the value of indigenous woody species.

Now the initiative has opened up to other themes judged relevant in Senegal, looking at both technical and socio-organisational innovation.

PROFEIS-Senegal received external funding from Misereor up to 2012; a proposal for continuation is now under review. Some external funding for work in Senegal in 2013 comes through a collaboration agreement between Prolinnova and CCAFS (Climate Change Agriculture and Food Security) Research Program of the CGIAR.
