Four sector components within a single program

The bilateral Cooperation Senegal - Luxembourg 2007-2011 programme supports three main sectors that are technical vocational education and training, basic health and water and sanitation (SEN/026). Moreover, a cross-cutting component focusing on governance is part of the programme.

The whole programme is running in Louga, Saint-Louis, Matam and Thies. The total provision by Luxembourg and Senegal amounted to 59 650 000 EUR ; representing 39 127 835 050 CFA francs.

In this context, Development Cooperation between Luxembourg and Senegal moves towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and especially their application in Senegal, materialised by the  Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP II).

Water and Sanitation - SEN/026

In line with the Millennium Program for drinking water and sanitation (PEPAM), the objective of the project SEN/026 is to increase the access of rural populations to a sustainable and serviced water supply system and  to sanitation infrastructures. At the end of the implementation of the project, 94 000 villagers have access to clean drinking water, 42 493 people have sanitation facilities. Moreover, officials of technical departments, women from the associations of drilling users (ASUFOR) and local masons were trained.
