National response plan of Senegal, 2020 budget breakdown

Published : November 2020

The Government of Senegal has converted its initial response plan (designed to assist 0.77 million people in crisis) into an ambitious plan covering the entire country. The National Emergency Plan for Food Security (PUSA 2020) seeks to “help mount, in association with all stakeholders involved in combating food and nutrition insecurity, a quick, strong and effective response, tailored to the threefold health, food and social challenge which the country faces”. As part of its Emergency Food Aid operation, the Government moved very fast to mitigate the socio-economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. From late April 2020, the Ministry of Community Development, Social and Territorial Equity (MDCEST) launched a large-scale support operation, delivering food kits to 1 million vulnerable households (8-10 million people out of a population of 16 million).
