The Senegalese government in April 2008 launched a very ambitious plan, which is now known as GOANA or Grande offensive agricole pour la nourriture et l’abondance (Great Agricultural Offensive for Food and Abundance). The aim of the programme was to put Senegal on a pathway to attain food sufficiency by 2015.
