Senegal launches entrepreneurial agroforestry programme

On March 4th 2015, Oxfam and its partners, local authorities, regional and communal extended services, microfinance organisations and local NGOs launched its three years programme on entrepreneurial agroforestry. The launching workshop was chaired by the Governor of Tambacounda and facilitated a discussion on how to federate stakeholders’ action for an optimal impact towards rural development. The key achievement of the meeting was a general consensus on the projects’ relevance.

Oxfam in Senegal promotes sustainable development of small family farms with respect and protection of access rights to land, water, seeds, credit, etc. To support small producers in the creation of small and medium enterprises, the livelihoods programme chose agroforestry to safeguard various production components.
