Senegal: Green Finance Consultancy – PSE Vert
Based in Seoul, The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) is an intergovernmental organization founded to support and promote a model of economic growth known as « green growth », which targets key aspects of economic performance such a poverty reduction, job creation, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability. GGGI works with countries around the world, building their capacity and working collaboratively on green growth policies that can impact the lives of millions.
Senegal has been a member of GGGI since November 2014 and for next 5-10 years its principal strategic focus is the successful implementation of policies to sustain strong macroeconomic growth and catalyze structural changes that targets poverty reduction and social inclusion. The Government of Senegal (GoS) recognized the need for change and adopted a very ambitious development strategy called “Plan Senegal Emergent” (PSE), to make Senegal an emerging country by 2035. GGGI is currently supporting the GoS to structure the green PSE, “PSE Vert”.
The Operational Office for the Monitoring (BOS) of the Senegal Emerging Plan (PSE) has started in 2021, as part of its missions, the structuring of the PSE Vert in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development (MEDD), the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) thanks to support of the MAVA Foundation and the European Union.
At the end of the strategic orientation workshop that closed the first structuring phase (called PRE-LAB), six (06) priority sectors were selected: i) energy, ii) forestry, iii) agriculture (including livestock and fishing), iv) industry, v) water and sanitation and vi) urban planning/construction.
The second phase of the structuring process began in January 2022 with the holding of meetings and roadshows with the sectoral ministries and departments concerned, the private sector, and the public governmental entities that are to be involved in the effective implementation of this ambitious program. In addition, a call for projects has been launched to identify strong and relevant projects due to partake in the LAB, an intensive structuring workshop spanning 5-6 weeks that will define the overall roadmap for the successful implementation of the Program.
Overall, the GoS aims through the PSE Vert to promote green growth, resilient to climate change, through the mobilization of the potential of green investments in all sectors of the economy by 2035. This potential, estimated at nearly XOF 4,000 billion, can be mobilized through multiple financing windows designed to support projects with a green, blue or environmental dimension at several levels.
In order to better understand the mechanisms governing the allocation of such funding and to map out such windows at the international level, it was deemed necessary to call upon the expertise of a recognized expert on this subject. This, with the aim of being able to accompany in an adequate and close manner the projects that will be selected, in order to mobilize the funding necessary to their good execution and subsequently, the effective operationalization of the program.
