On the occasion of the RPCA restricted meeting of 2 April 2020, a group of international NGOs published this document to alert on the risk of rising death toll in West Africa in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic. The document includes three key recommendations: 1) Make protection of the most vulnerable a priority; 2) Adopt a “do no harm” approach to stop the outbreak; and 3) Focus on livelihoods now and start building more resilient food systems to prevent future food crises.
