Maps & Facts: Food issues: demographic, urban, migration and security challenges
Published : November 2016
This “Maps & Facts” series looks at the demographic, urban, migration and security challenges in the Sahel and West Africa through the lens of food issues. It promotes the following key message: the challenges facing food security should not be overshadowed by the resurgence of demographic, migration and security concerns on the international agenda. Rather, food security is closely related to these issues, and should be considered as part of the solution to the challenges they raise. In conclusion, food issues must remain at the centre of all reflection, policy and action – from food crisis prevention, to economic development, to building the resilience of the most vulnerable people.
