Regional logistics augmentation in support of the Sahel Drought Crisis

This Operation has been modified as per Budget Revision 2 (see below).

The drought in the Sahel poses a significant logistical challenge to the World Food Programme. West Africa is a poor region in which the current infrastructure, ports and inland transport corridors, are largely inadequate to absorb the quantities of humanitarian assistance required to reach people in need. The supply chain is complex, with several activated corridors and different procurement modalities, international as well as regional. The food pipeline also includes significant quantities of nutritious commodities that are sensitive to the hot climate in the Sahel region.
