Évaluation Environnementale Stratégique (EES)

The Government of Senegal, with the support of UNIDO, AfDB, IsDB and GCF, is preparing the establishment of a Food Processing Zone Programme (PZTA-Sud) in Casamance to provide decisive support in reviving economic activities in the southern part of the country. PZTA-Sud or South Agro-pole, which is part of the Emerging Senegal Plan (ESP) is aimed more especially at sustainable prospects in the rural sector, which accounts for a huge percentage of employment of the Casamance population and which offers short- and medium-term development opportunities of the region. This sector has significant potential as well as the capacity to create a synergy between other sectors of the economy, especially agro-food industries and to serve as a lever for other sectors such as transport and trade.
