Long term planning framework: Sahel region 2012-2015

The main objective of the Sahel Regional Representation plan for 2012-2015 is to enhance the operational efficiency of the regional office and increase its capacity to engage with National Societies in the region in order to scale up humanitarian work in the region, which is increasingly prone to floods, drought and other effects of weather.

This plan seeks added international resources that would better address National Societies’ capacity needs, enabling them to scale up their humanitarian work and thereby increase the responsiveness of the system for disaster management at the regional level, encompassing the entire cycle, including hazards/risk mapping, early warning, contingency planning, disaster risk management, development of tools and standard operating procedures, dissemination of policies, standards and guidelines and promotion of disaster risk reduction and its integration into other programming and climate change adaptation.
