FAO Investment Centre

Building resilience in the Sahel


The Investment Centre is assisting in the design of a World Bank-funded USD 250 million regional project for support to pastoralism in the Sahel to enhance livelihood resilience of pastoralists in cross-border, drought-prone areas of six semi-arid to arid countries in West Africa: Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Senegal.

To inform the design, the Investment Centre carried out a stock-taking exercise of lessons learned to identify activities proven to be effective in supporting pastoralist groups and enhancing regional integration with potential for significant spill-over effects. The on-the-job training provided to the national teams for the project appraisal document formulation is facilitating national leadership and country ownership.
