One path towards co-ordination: the Food Crisis Prevention Network in the Sahelian countries

One path towards co-ordination: the Food Crisis Prevention Network in the Sahelian countries Download

Published : November 1985

At the initiative of the Secretariats of CILSS and the Club du Sahel, the participants of the Food Crisis Prevention Network in the Sahel met on 23-24 October 1985 at the OECD headquarters in Paris. All agencies participating in food aid in the Sahel were represented. Participants took stock of the 1984-85 agricultural campaign. “At the end of 1985, the Sahel found itself in a very instructive situation. After a serious food shortage, a surplus crisis threatens the Sahel”, indicates the summary record. “Both crises – shortage and abundance – highlight the same problem:  the weakness of food policies in the Sahelian countries, including poor control over food aid. These aspects of the same crisis made Sahelian governments and co-operation agencies somewhat helpless. There is therefore still a lot to do to prevent food crises; first, we need to learn from recent experiences”, the report concludes.
