The table provides an overview of the projections of the CH analysis, which have been reviewed during a regional concertation meeting in March 2020 (pre-Covid-19).

  • No country was initially projected to face famine (phase 5); however, the CH June update for Burkina Faso identified 11 400 people in phase 5
  • At least 1.2 million people in the region were set to be in an emergency situation (phase 4)
  • Six countries (Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Niger, Nigeria and Sierra Leone) counted more than 1 million people in a “Crisis” or worse situation (phases 3-5)
  • 51 million vulnerable people (phase 2) required close monitoring as they were at risk of falling into a crisis situation
  • More than 1 out of 10 people was severely food insecure in Burkina Faso, Mauritania and Sierra Leone (prevalence >10%)
