The Sahel Integrated Resilience Programme & Scale-up 2023-2028 Executive summary

Author: RBD
WFP, governments and partners are embarking on an ambitious second phase of the Sahel Integrated Resilience Programme (2023-2028).

Based on lessons learned so far, the scale-up plan will:

1. Continue to focus on quality implementation, consolidate resilience gains and adapt support packages in existing sites to pave the way for resilient local food systems before phasing-out; 

2. Expand activities to new sites, ensuring landscape continuity to restore ecosystems and contribute to the Great Green Wall initiative, and ensuring a deliberate nexus approach in contingent buffer zones;

3. Further strengthen programme integration, in particular insisting on linkages with shock-responsive social protection, value chain programming and disaster risk financing; and 

4. Reinforce complementarity with partners to facilitate access to land, enhance investments in local food systems (food processing, transformation, innovative agricultural production technologies, post-harvest losses, etc.), reinforce linkages with local energy and water investments, and strengthen social cohesion.
