Food Security and humanitarian implications in West Africa and the Sahel - FAO/WFP Joint Note, May 2014

Food Security and humanitarian implications in West Africa and the Sahel - FAO/WFP Joint Note, May 2014
Jun 2014

Key points

  • Population displacements as a result of violence in the Central African Republic, in northern Nigeria and in northern Mali, pose a humanitarian risk in the region. Thousands of refugees continue to arrive in Cameroon in very difficult conditions.
  • Heavy rains along the Gulf of Guinea mark the start of the agricultural campaign.
  • The prices of coarse grains (millet, sorghum) remain above their five-year averages in the majority of the region’s countries.
  • The lean season has started for most rural households, who will depend heavily on markets to ensure their food security.
