"Agricultural Policy, Productivity and Long Term Economic Growth in Senegal : An Analysis using Dynamic Computable General Equilibrium"
by Sy, Hamat

For decades, senegalese agriculture has experienced many difficulties related to low productivity of factors and a very fluctuating production. In turn, less and less, participated in the creation of national wealth, causing a massive migration of rural people to the urban community.

The contribution of agriculture to the GDP formation has significantly declined during the last fifteen years. Its share in GDP rose from 10.10% between 1997 and 2001 to 7.86% between 2007 and 2011. This modest contribution to GDP, coupled with the weight of the workforce by 30%, gives pretty precise indications on the weakness of the agricultural labour productivity.

Difficulties in the agricultural sector are particularly related to the deterioration of agricultural equipment, to the State of degradation of the infrastructure, the quality of seed, the lack of storage units and the lack of farm credit. As a result, the deficit of production remains critical, resulting in a level high imports of agricultural products.
