This SWAC-CILSS study was initiated as a contribution of the Sahel and West Africa Club Secretariat  (SWAC/OECD) to the process of setting up an ECOWAS regional food security reserve. It consisted on the one hand in carrying out a complete inventory in ten countries of the region (Cabo Verde, Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Mauritania, Nigeria and Sierra Leone). On the other hand, the study collected additional information in seven countries in the UEMOA area (Benin, Burkina Faso, Guinea Bissau, Mali, Niger, Senegal and Togo) which had previously been analysed in a similar study commissioned in 2011 by UEMOA and carried out by CILSS.
