Sur instructions de SM le Roi Mohammed VI, et dans le cadre de sa solidarité agissante avec les pays frères du continent africain, le Maroc a envoyé mardi au Burkina Faso un premier lot d'une importante aide humanitaire destinée aux populations sinistrées, victimes des inondations.
Ce premier lot, composé de 16 tonnes de denrées alimentaires, de médicaments et de couvertures, entre autres, a été acheminé à bord d’un avion au Burkina Faso.
Participants in the regional technical consultation on agricultural and food prospects in the Sahel and West Africa, held from 19 to 21 September 2016, in Lomé, Togo, draw the following conclusions:
1. As part of preparations for the agro-pastoral season, States and their partners provided support to farmers with inputs (seeds, fertilizers, pesticides) and agricultural equipment, even if these efforts have not met the expressed needs.
Relatively well-distributed rainfall in most of the region with above normal in Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, Nigeria and Senegal.
Normal availability of pastures in the pastoral areas of the region.
Increase in the number of food and nutrition insecure people in North East Nigeria, including 65,095 people in phase 5 (famine)
- Greece: IOM has completed the installation of communication containers in six sites/ camps where IOM has permanent presence (three in Attica and three in Northern Greece).
Continued adequate moisture conditions raise hopes for average to above-average harvest
The Intertropical Front (ITF) started its southward retreat in early September but it remains either at or north of its average position, which could mean a normal to longer growing period.
From early July until mid-September, mostly average to above-average rainfall that has been well-distributed over time has fallen throughout most of the region (Figures 1 and 2), which is ensuring good growing conditions.
Libya - On 20 September, IOM Libya helped 160 stranded Burkinabe migrants, including 13 women, 9 children and 4 infants to return to Burkina Faso from Libya.
The repatriation – carried out in close cooperation with the Libyan authorities, the Burkina Faso Embassy in Tripoli and the IOM office in Burkina Faso – was by charter flight from Tripoli’s Mitiga Airport to the Burkinabe capital Ouagadougou.
