Centre de Suivi Ecologique


  • Type Direct (National)
  • Date of accreditation 25 Mar 2015

The Centre de Suivi Écologique (CSE) is a national entity located in Senegal whose core activities include environmental monitoring, natural resources management and conducting environmental impact assessments. It has built partnerships at the local (subnational) and national levels, as well as with international donors, in order to develop climate change projects and programmes, particularly in the areas of environment, agriculture and livestock. One of its key activities has been improving the access of vulnerable populations and local stakeholders to information required in order to strengthen their resilience to and to build capacity to adapt to climate change variability and impacts, such as droughts and desertification. Other activities include conducting economic analyses for areas that are particularly vulnerable to climate change and natural risks, thereby allowing for better adaptation project selection. CSE views its accreditation to the GCF is an opportunity for it to continue developing and delivering climate change adaptation projects and programmes at the national and subnational levels, and in the process build its capacity as an organisation to serve more regions.
