Relations between the EU and Senegal are based on political dialogue under the Cotonou Agreement, relating to development assistance and trade.

The EU has also sent delegations to observe recent elections in Senegal: an observation mission for the presidential elections in February 2012 and an expert mission for the legislative elections in July 2012.

Development assistance

Provided through the European Development Fund mainly for:

  • Strengthening democratic governance;
  • Development of sustainable agriculture and food security;
  • Water and sanitation.

The total amount of 11th EFD funding for Senegal is EUR 347 million for the 2014-2020 period, EUR 200 million of which is for the first 2014-2017 period. A revision of the amount should take place in 2016/17 in order to prepare for the second phase (2018-2020). This will be based on the new development strategy to be defined by Senegal.

Senegal also receives aid from regional, intra-ACP and issue-specific programmes, as well as EU humanitarian aid to help tackle the consequences of the Sahel food crisis.
