Disaster risk management strategy in West Africa and the Sahel (2011-2013)

Source(s):  Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations - Headquarters (FAO)

This sub-regional strategy provides an integrated approach to planning disaster risk management and disaster risk reduction activities for the relevant FAO country offices, while at the same time laying the foundation for the development of national Plans of Action. The strategy will be implemented in coordination with other relevant actors, such as regional and sub-regional institutions, the governments involved, United Nations agencies and other non-governmental organizations.

The overall objective of the strategy is to strengthen community resilience and to reduce their vulnerability to various shocks, in an effort to help the countries of this sub-region to become more food secure and to enable them to focus on developing sustainable food and agriculture systems. Specific goals and priority activities have been identified based on risks and challenges that have been recognized. The following countries are covered by this sub-regional strategy: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, the Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo.
