Several development partners raised the alert concerning the deteriorating security situation in the Central Sahel (Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger), which turned into “one of the world’s fastest-growing humanitarian crises”. On 20 October 2020, the Government of Denmark, in partnership with the Government of Germany, the EU and the United Nations, hosted a high-level humanitarian event on the Central Sahel. The event included a ministerial roundtable, bringing together representatives from Member States, International Organisations, UN Agencies, NGOs and civil society. The roundtable obtained political commitments and raised a total of EUR 1.47 billion funding pledges (EUR 848.9 million for 2020 and EUR 620.8 for 2021 and beyond). All together, some 24 announcements were made.
