Senegal gets ready for the lean season

The lean season—which lasts from June to September each year in Senegal—is a difficult period for the poorest families. WFP and the Government of Senegal are working together to ensure they have enough to eat, providing food to some 675,000 people during these difficult months.


Although it is one of the region’s more stable countries, Senegal remains a low-income, food-deficit nation with an estimated population of 13.7 million. Senegal is ranked 154 out of 186 on the 2013 Human Development Index. en français
