Relations are based on political dialogue under the Cotonou Agreement, 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:

• transport and sanitation infrastructure
• regional integration
• good political, economic and social governance

Under the EU strategy for Senegal 2008-13 , the EU has earmarked €317.1m for the country. This includes budget support (31% of the total envelope)  supporting Senegal's efforts to create strong and balanced growth, provide access to basic social services, protect the most vulnerable and promote good governance and the rule of law. Beyond budget support, the EU supports regional and trade integration as well as sanitation as two specific focal sectors.

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.
