Sustainable Development Goals

Senegal has adhered to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which "constitute a universal call to action aimed at eradicating poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring peace and prosperity for all peoples".

These SDGs are found in the Emerging Senegal Plan, the reference for the country's economic policy, on which the FONSIS strategy is built.

The PSE is based on three axes to reach "an Emerging Senegal in 2035 with a united society in a state of law" ; the inclusive growth (Axis 1) aiming at reducing inequalities and effectively and sustainably financing human development (Axis 2) and good governance (Axis 3) programs.

FONSIS, as the Sovereign Wealth Fund of Senegal, adheres to these SDGs and deploys a strategy aimed at creating sustainable wealth for current and future generations in a vision of territorial equity.
