Results from Senegal PGP DRG Integration Pilot Activity
This brief summarizes the results of the successful DRG Integration Pilot implemented by FHI 360 as part of the USAID Program for Governance and Peace (PGP). The pilot activities were implemented in Casamance, a marginalized area of Senegal with one of the longest standing civil conflicts in Africa. The activity was funded through the Integration Innovation Fund from the USAID Democracy, Rights and Governance Center of Excellence in USAID/Washington. Activities targeted an endemic, multi-sectoral problem: the lack of birth registrations and birth certificates for children aged 14 and under. Birth certificates in Senegal enable access to health care, education, voting rights and other vital services. Using the Good Governance Barometer (GGB) process, FHI 360 integrated governance principles and approaches into the management of the civil records, justice, health, and education sectors to improve their ability to play their respective roles.
