Published : April 2021

The Sahel and West Africa are facing a major food and nutrition crisis for the second consecutive year and 27.1 million people could be at risk during the 2021 lean season. A swift and co-ordinated response is needed alongside strengthened political commitment to finding more sustainable ways of addressing recurrent crises and the growing need for food assistance across the region. This RPCA Policy Brief draws on the conclusions of the annual and restricted meetings of the Food Crisis Prevention Network (RPCA), held respectively on 3 December 2020 and 8-9 April 2021 via videoconference. The RPCA Policy Brief includes three messages along with some major implications for regional organisations (ECOWAS, UEMOA and CILSS).
