This document shows how WFP’s global framework for food systems transformation is adapted to the context of the Western Africa region. This region consists of 20 countries where WFP operates including the Sahel subregion (Mauritania, Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, Chad, and Cabo Verde), the Gulf of Guinea (Cote d’Ivoire, Togo, Benin, Ghana, and Sao Tome and Principe), other coastal countries (Senegal, The Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Guinea Conakry, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria, and two countries in the Central Africa region (Cameroon and Central African Republic). Key issues that face food systems in this region include (1) conflicts that disrupt food supply systems, (2) economic shocks that make nutritious diets unaffordable, and (3) climate shocks that have been reducing production capacity due to desertification, droughts, and floods.
