IPAR is a space for reflection, dialogue, and proposals for cooperative agricultural and rural policies in Senegal and the West African region.

The data revolution was triggered in this context to ensure better monitoring of progress. In terms of data collection, almost all recognize that considerable efforts were made in Senegal over the past two decades to improve the financial, human, technical and institutional of the National Statistical Office: National Agency Statistics and Demography (ANSD). However, the availability and accessibility of data remain problematic, especially because of the need to use more of development indicators throughout the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. IPAR is in charge of coordinating the Senegal case study as part of the data test for Agenda 2030 and the SDGs.

IPAR is working closely with various stakeholders at the national level, including policymakers, development and financial partners, civil society, academia, the private sector, ANSD, and others government officials in charge of the collection, analysis, and dissemination of data.
