Humanitarian aid to Western Africa, FAO
In the West Africa and Sahel region, millions of vulnerable people who depend on the production, marketing and consumption of crops, livestock, fish, forests and other natural resources are confronted by recurring disasters and crises. These shocks undermine their livelihoods and threaten their food and nutrition security. Drought, floods, the locust threat, socio-political instability or rising food prices exacerbate the structural weaknesses of countries in this region, known for their decreasing soil fertility and desertification, insufficient agriculture investments, high poverty rate and population growth. For 2014 and in the framework of the 2014-2016 Sahel Strategic Response Plan, FAO is appealing for a total of USD 116 million to assist more than 7.6 million people.
