Data from the latest agricultural survey allow Senegal to better calculate SDGs 2.3.1, 2.3.2 and 5.a.1

On December 21st, the Directorate of Analysis, Forecasting and Agricultural Statistics (DAPSA) held a national workshop for presenting the main results from the Annual Agricultural Survey (EAA) 2021-2022. This edition of the EAA comes with significant advances, starting with the compilation for the first time of SDG 5.a.1 and the updating of SDGs 2.3.1 and 2.3.2 following the methodological recommendations of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

Zooming in on indicator 5.a.1, EAA preliminary estimates suggest that, in Senegal, 7.9% of total agricultural population have ownership or secure rights over agricultural land. Yet, this proportion goes down to 1.4% for the women. Moreover, 8.9% is the share of women among owners or rights-bearers of agricultural land.

The EAA 2021-22 covered also for the first time the sector of non-household agricultural holdings, which will make it possible to improve the estimates of total agricultural production. Furthermore, the workshop provided an opportunity to give an overview of the wealth of information generated by the EAA with topics covering socio-demographic characteristics of farm households, farming activities, farm land use, farm inputs, labor agricultural work, etc. Users can access resources from

The 2021-2022 edition of the EAA marks the transition between the AGRISurvey programme implemented by FAO since 2017 and the 50x2030 Initiative, jointly implemented by the World Bank, FAO and IFAD. The continuity in the implementation of the programme facilitates the sustainability of the progress achieved throughout the years and promotes the ownership of the results by the country.
