USAID Senegal is supporting a five year $40 million USD Feed the Future Senegal Cultivating Nutrition activity to improve diets among the Senegalese population, particularly young children and women of reproductive age, in the Feed the Future Zone of Influence (ZOI). The project’s purpose is to improve year-round access to diverse, nutritious, and safe foods along with increasing adoption of nutrition and care practices that promote consumption of a healthy diet. Ultimately, improved diets will reduce risks of undernutrition and overnutrition, both of which hamper human health, productivity, and economic growth. To achieve its overall the goal the Senegal Cultivating activity will focus on sustainable food systems development and support it to satisfy demand, diminish malnutrition, and promote economic development.
This activity is an integral part of USAID/Senegal’s new Economic Growth For All (EG4ALL) Project (2018-2023), which aims to reduce poverty and undernourishment among beneficiaries via increased incomes, consumption of nutritious and safe diets, and environmental capital.
