For the third consecutive year, the countries of the Sahel and West Africa are facing a food and nutrition crisis of exceptional proportions. Hunger and malnutrition could affect 38.3 million people by June if appropriate measures are not taken. Countries in central Sahel and Lake Chad are by far the most affected. This situation is a result of long-term structural issues including poverty, a lack of availability and access to basic social services and chronic insecurity. Recent socio-economic shocks, extreme weather events and the impacts of Covid-19 and the war in Ukraine are all exacerbating the food and nutrition situation.
