Abstract: This paper presents the findings of the CBA of Senegal’s rice value chains (looking at rain-fed and irrigated rice specifically). The analysis looks at evaluating the recent Feed the Future (FtF) activities implemented under the PCE (Projet de Croissance Economique) in Senegal. Overall, the analysis points to two important conclusions: 1. The GoS, other donor partners, and the PCE project significantly improved the productivity of the irrigated rice VC over the last five years. From an economic point of view, the benefits of domestic rice production currently outweigh the costs, even with GoS subsidies and donor support. 2. The ERR is only one percent above the discount rate of 12%, emphasizing the importance of a well-defined exit strategy for both the GoS and international donors. The removal of subsidies or the inability of the budget to sustain such significant fiscal outflows may result in adverse effects throughout the VC.
