How Sahelians boost their resilience: Evidence from the ground and the Sky

Author: RBD

In 2018, WFP and partners launched an innovative programme – the Sahel Integrated Resilience Programme – to help individuals, communities and governments in tapping into this potential and boosting their resilience across five countries: Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, and Niger.

Since then, interventions incrementally scaled up and reached almost 3 million people in over 2,750 villages. The results achieved so far are a testimony that the region can move beyond the crises and pave the way towards building truly resilient societies with stronger local food systems.
