IDA at Work
The IDA-funded West African Agricultural Productivity Program provides one-time subsidies on the sale of almost 2,000 tons of maize, millet, and sorghum seeds in Senegal. The seeds are guaranteed to produce higher yields, be more drought-resistant, and have shorter maturity cycles.
An IDA-supported safety net program empowers the lives of poor households by investing in their children's health and education, and protect them from crises and shocks.
A sustainable forest management program puts communities in charge of local natural resources, leading to sustainable management of 80% of forests nationwide and a decline in deforestation of 23,700 hectares.
