Sahel 2020 : Sahel overview of humanitarian needs and requirements (EN)

Sahel countries count among the world’s most exposed to crises and disasters. Increasingly unpredictable weather patterns, frequent droughts and floods and land degradation threaten the livelihoods of highly vulnerable communities. Food insecurity and malnutrition are high and widespread, with seasonal peaks pushing rural areas into severe crisis. 

A surge in armed conflict and violence, now affecting vast areas, has worsened persistent needs, uprooted entire communities and disrupted livelihoods. Exacerbated by conflict dynamics and environmental degradation, tensions in communities with deep-rooted grievances are growing.
