Sahel - Regional overview (April 2019)
Apr 2019

Key points

  • Following the impact of severe drought that decimated pasture, livestock and crops in 2018, the situation of millions of affected families is still fragile.
  • If adequate timely assistance is not provided, the food security situation will likely worsen with 9.7 million people projected to be severely food insecure during the upcoming lean season (June–August 2019).
  • Despite overall good availability of fodder resources, access remains difficult in certain areas of Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali and the Niger where insecurity persists; in other areas – certain parts of Mauritania and Senegal – fodder resources have been depleted or are very limited.
