AFRISTAT: Sub-Saharan Africa Economic and Statistical Observatory

Since 2006, a draft document, “Trust Fund” has been drafted by all three schools (ENSEA, ISSEA and ENSAE-Senegal) with the support of the Sub-Saharan Africa Economic and Statistical Observatory (AFRISTAT) to solicit financial support from the World Bank.
