Your Many Good Reasons to Choose UCAD for the MDP Degree ? The University Cheikh Anta Diop of Dakar, Senegal (UCAD) is the sole francophone university member of the MDP network. Senegal, one of the world’s Least Developed Countries (LDCs) with over 70% of its population below the poverty line in some areas, is facing major challenges in the areas of education, health, climate change, etc. Over the years, UCAD’s faculty, researchers and students have developed considerable capabilities to work with policy-makers, both at local and international levels, as well as with international development institutions and NGOs, to address sustainable development issues. It is also important to note that the villages of Potou and Leona in the Louga region at less than 300 km from Dakar, are millennium development villages which will offer the UCAD MDP program a key framework for experimenting classroom acquired tools through field training. Each year, MDP students will stay for at least two months at project sites, to live and work with local people to overcome daily development challenges. In addition to this hand-on experience in the field, they will be offered internships in international development institutions and government institutions to be exposed to public policy-making.
