PASPED (Projet de contraste à la migration irrégulière à travers l’appui au Secteur Privé et à la création d’emplois au Sénégal) is a 21-month project financed by AICS Dakar as part of the overall programme PLASEPRI/PASPED and aims at fostering the socio-economic development in Senegal by capitalising the Senegalese diaspora between Europe and Italy.
The project idea stems from the collaboration and the exchanges with the Senegalese diaspora in Italy and from the shared objective to promote the business ideas of Senegalese citizens to be realised in their home country, as well as to strengthen the interconnections between Italy and Senegal and to support the circular migration.
Within this framework, PASPED aims at increasing the knowledge of the Senegalese citizens in Italy on the PLASEPRI/PASPED support measures and at improving their access to the opportunities available, thanks to the widespread network of info points in synergy with the consulates of Milan and Naples.
In particular, 70 business ideas will be selected and their promoters supported – thanks to training & coaching, in developing fully-fledged business plans, which will be submitted to AICS Dakar, which may award (to at least 50 of them) a financial contribution.
It is expected that, thanks to the project:
- 70 business ideas are selected to be developed through a fully-fledged package of support, to be realised in Senegal
- 13 socio-economic operators are selected among the Senegalese diaspora to support the development of business ideas
- At least 42000 people from the Senegalese diaspora are informed on the opportunities available to develop business in their home country

CONSOLIDARE: ALTRI PROGETTI
Through the evaluation of the Bandi Energia (Energy Call for Proposals), promoted by Fondazione Cariplo and Banco dell’Energia, we contribute to the development of intervention models finalised at avoiding that disadvantaged families in the Lombardy descend into structural poverty. We do this by focusing on promoting skills and territorial networks.
We are working for the Associazione di Fondazioni e di Casse di Risparmio (ACRI) (Association of Foundations and Savings Banks) to define a multi-actor model of intervention in Africa, capable of aggregating resources and promoting the Italian development system in the strategic sectors of food farming and energy
