Introduction

This work is part of an initiative taken by CONGAD for a participatory advocacy campaign on the financing of agriculture in Senegal. The survey benefitted from the technical and financial partnership with Christian Aid. Moreover, the conduct and monitoring of the survey were performed by a steering committee composed of various actors.

The mission is presented through the context, objectives, expected results, methodology, and conduct (I).

The second part presents the context in which commitments were made ​​in Maputo in 2003 by African governments to support African agriculture (II).

The third part sums up the situation as to what extent Senegal has met its commitments (III).

Then an analysis shows the three major periods of significant changes in the financing of agriculture in Senegal from 1980 to 2010: from 1980 to 1997, the period of weaning from 1997 to 2000, the return of agriculture and from 2000 to 2010: the return of public voluntarism (IV).

Afterwards, the stakes and challenges of agricultural financing are presented in an analytical form (V).

Finally, based on the previous analysis, recommendations are made ​​in the form of two main lines for strategic advocacy (VI).
