ECOWAS countries with more than 1 million acutely-food insecure people (phases 3-5)
Food insecurity in the Liptako-Gourma area, June-August 2020
Published : November 2020
The Liptako-Gourma area – composed of border areas of Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger – is the second acute food insecurity hotspot in the region. While geographic definitions may vary, the border areas of these three countries concentrate a disproportional large share of severely food-insecure people compared to the rest of their respective territories. Nearly half of the food insecure people of the three countries (2.7 million out of 5.5 million people) live in this area.
