Entre 2015 et 2016, la région de l’Afrique de l’Ouest et le Sahel a connu des élections majeures qui se sont déroulées, dans la plus part des cas, d’une manière pacifique, crédibles selon les divers rapports des observateurs internationaux. Des pays comme le Benin, le Burkina Faso, le Cap Vert, la Gambie, le Ghana, la Guinée, le Niger, le Nigeria et le Togo sont désormais cités en exemple d’élections pacifiques et d’alternances démocratiques.
Continued heavy rainfall causes ooding in Ethiopia, Sudan, and South Sudan
Africa Weather Hazards
Below-average rainfall since mid-May has led to abnormal dryness across eastern Uganda and southwestern Kenya. Moisture deficits are likely to negatively impact cropping and Pastoral activities.
Repeated weeks of very heavy, above-normal rains have oversaturated the ground in parts of Ethiopia, Sudan, and South Sudan. More heavy rain during the next week is likely to cause further flooding.
