Graduating Country

Man rowing boat in Senegal

In recent years, Senegal has established itself as one of West Africa’s economic hubs and, in the process, made significant strides towards improving the well-being of its population. Nevertheless, with much of its territory classified as semi-arid, the country is especially vulnerable to climate change impacts. As a large share of the population relies heavily on natural capital for their livelihood, committing to a green and inclusive economy is key to developmental success. In October 2022, Senegal celebrated eight years of PAGE collaboration after joining the partnership in 2014. It is now a Graduating Country.

The partnership in Senegal has contributed to progress towards SDGs 4 (Quality Education), 5 (Gender Equality), 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure), 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production) and 17 (Partnership for the Goals).
