The Sahel has experienced a greater increase in hunger over the past decade than any other region. Sahelian states, regional organizations, and technical and financial partners have experienced considerable difficulties in providing a structural and sustainable response to food and nutrition insecurity. Yet hunger is not inevitable in the Sahel. Beyond the rhetoric, these various actors must make major investments in building the resilience capacities of populations to guarantee their food and nutritional security in the long term. This imperative is even more urgent in a context of increased militarization of the Sahel and growing security challenges. Oxfam, Save the Children and Action Against Hunger reiterate the urgency of strengthening humanitarian and development responses and the civilian protection and putting them at the heart of regional priorities.
