This advocacy note, prepared by the Regional Food Security and Nutrition Working Group – West Africa, highlights the immediate consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic on livelihoods and food and nutrition security of the West African populations. It is a call for immediate and concerted actions of all stakeholders. It includes urgent recommendations that can help prevent and mitigate the indirect impacts of the COVID-19 crisis in a region which is already affected by an exceptionally high level of food insecurity: nearly 19 million people are at risk of being in a “Crisis” situation in June-August 2020. More than 7.4 million children under the age of 5 were at risk of acute malnutrition before the onset of the pandemic.
