The Sahel region in West Africa is home to 109 million people of whom 34.5 million need humanitarian assistance and protection.

The region is one of the world’s most crisis-prone areas, with increasingly extreme weather patterns, frequent droughts and floods, and land degradation that threaten vulnerable communities’ livelihoods. It has also seen a significant increase in armed conflict and violence.

There is an urgent need to raise the profile of the Sahel crisis and mobilize support for immediate humanitarian action.
