Senegal – Sahel Irrigation Initiative Project (SIIP)

Africa Rice Center (AfricaRice) and the Dutch Food Security Alliance (NL-FSA) engaged together with our partners to advance the rural livelihoods in Senegal. Extending the capacity building from the EMPRICE initiative, we offer young people a comprehensive vocational training in agribusiness development and assist the graduates in establishing their own commercial farms.

Continuous innovation in production and managing water and soils is our key to intensify the agricultural production without overconsuming resources. Our combination of investing in people’s capacity, providing financial self-sustaining training, and maintaining a continuous innovation in agribusiness development is unique. Together we reach a true change and impact that lasts for future generations.
