Programme d’acceleration de la cadence de l’agriculture Senegalese (PRACAS), 2014-2017


As part of the efforts to improve food and nutrition security, fight rural poverty and achieve a sustainable agriculture in Senegal, the Prime Minister attached greater importance to the need to accelerate processes for agricultural transformation in his General Policy Statement of 28 October 2013. Following this effort, the government drafted a Program of Acceleration of the Rate of Senegalese Agriculture (PRACAS).


In line with the Senegalese Emergency Plan (PES), PRACAS is expected to modernise family farms through professional training of farmers, promote agricultural and rural entrepreneurship, involve young people and women in the agricultural sector with the establishment of agricultural income-generating and knowledge-building jobs, and strengthen the resilience of vulnerable populations.
