Strengthening the resilience of farming communities to extractive industry abuses and climate change in the Niayes, Senegal

Project summary

CRADESC supports fifteen farming communities to promote a sustainable economy in the Niayes, a fertile coastal strip representing 80% of the horticultural production in Senegal. Small-scale farming in this area faces threats related to land predation, signifiant pollution from extractive activities, and climate change hazards. The project is supporting the communities to foster improved collective decision-making among small-scale farmers and agricultural entrepreneurs, better land tenure systems, well-managed farmer’s cooperative, and capacity building strategies.
