ENSAE, the National School of Statistics and Economic Analysis in Senegal and the Millennium Institute have decided to join forces in order to strengthen planning capacities in Senegal.
ENSAE intends to offer a graduate course in system dynamics – based on the planning model developed by the Millennium Institute – in order to fulfill the needs expressed by national ministries and further develop academic knowledge. This course, similar as the one currently given at the University of Bergen would allow both graduate students and (non)-governmental staff to access knowledge in their mother tongue and at an affordable price. ENSAE and CCGA staff are now searching for seed funds to finance the establishment of the course.
This initiative, part of the pilot project “Changing Course in Global Agriculture”, represents a further positive step in efforts to encourage the development of sustainable ecological agriculture in Senegal.
