On 18 September, the Senegalese NOC, the French Development Agency (AFD) and the National Institute of Sport, Expertise and Performance (INSEP) signed a funding agreement to the tune of EUR 1.2 million in Paris (France). Mamadou Diagna Ndiaye, the NOC President and an IOC Member, Rémy Rioux, the AFD Chief Executive Officer, and Abdelghani Yalouz, the Director General of INSEP, formally established this partnership in the context of preparations for the first Youth Olympic Games to be held in Africa, Dakar 2026 (photo above). The AFD and INSEP are joining forces to support the Senegalese NOC in its mission to structure the Senegalese sports movement. To this end, the agreement will, among other things, help to provide training to young Senegalese athletes who will be taking part in the YOG Dakar 2026. This funding agreement follows on from an initial cooperation agreement, signed between the AFD and the NOC in September 2019, to finance refurbishment work for sporting infrastructure that will be used at the YOG Dakar 2026.
