Transforming the Sahel – Impressions from the field

In 2018, WFP launched an innovative programme to boost resilience across the G5 Sahel countries (Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania and Niger). For the first time, an integrated package of activities - combining Food for Assets (FFA), school feeding, nutrition, capacity strengthening and seasonal support - is implemented across the region and at scale in close coordination with governments and partners. This publication provides some impressions from the field, showcasing the significant progress made since the onset of the programme as well as concrete, innovative initiatives emerging from the ground.
