The German bilateral development cooperation in Senegal is active in the field of renewable energy and energy efficiency.

The Development Cooperation section ensures the liaison between the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and the Senegalese Government. It serves as a focal point for any matters of the governmental and non-governmental development cooperation and is in permanent dialogue with the Senegalese Government, the German implementing agencies (GIZ, KfW), international development partners and non-governmental organizations. 

The Development Cooperation section furthermore supports the implementing agencies GIZ and KfW and the numerous German non-governmental organizations in their work. 

In addition the Embassy provides financing for so-called “micro projects”. Financing can be solicited for every project at any location in the country, with the aim of sustainably improving the (essential) living conditions of a group of persons or communities.
