Assistance to conflict-affected people and other communitites affected by production deficit in Casamance Naturelle

This Operation has been modified as per Budget Revision 2 (see below)

This second Budget Revision (BR) to Senegal’s Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation (PRRO) 200138, “Assistance to Conflict-Affected populations in the Casamance Naturelle and other Communities Impacted by Production Deficits”, accommodates a budget increase, an expansion in geographic coverage and an extension in time.

Casamance Naturelle, in southern Senegal, has been affected by a protracted conflict since 1982, which has caused population displacement and disruption of livelihoods. Despite Casamance being the most fertile area in Senegal, sporadic acts of violence and landmines continue to disrupt agricultural activity and trade. As a result, Casamance has the highest prevalence of food insecurity in the country, with over 50 percent of the population being food-insecure, a high prevalence of stunting, and the highest prevalence of micronutrient deficiencies among children and women.
