Download

Published : December 2019

This regional summary presents key findings, drivers and facts & figures from the most recent Cadre harmonisé analyses of the food and nutrition situation in the Sahel and West Africa. Some 9.4 million people are estimated to be in immediate need of assistance (phases 3-5) in October-December 2019 in the 16 countries analysed (excluding Liberia), including 4 million in Nigeria, 1.5 million in Niger and 1.2 million in Burkina Faso. This situation is likely to worsen, mainly due to insecurity. By June-August 2020, 14.4 million people (5.4%) are projected to be in a crisis situation or worse, including 1.2 million in an emergency situation (phase 4). The document includes an analysis of the four dimensions of food security as well as a series of recommendations for urgent actions and structural support to strengthen the monitoring and surveillance system. This document was produced with the support of the SWAC/OECD Secretariat.
