Overall, the IFAD-supported country programme in Senegal led to positive results in terms of enhanced social capital, improved agricultural production and food security. The project portfolio contributed to build capacities among the rural poor and their organizations, as well as to introduce innovations, notably in production techniques, research, local agricultural advice and pasture management.

At the same time, results were limited by the partial reforms in the agricultural sector and a fragmented approach to major environmental challenges, climate change and gender equality issues. The evaluation also identifies the need to ensure sustainability of results after project completion, and to build complementary partnerships to maximize support for scaling up successful innovations.
