Statement by Mr. Abdoulaye Mar DIEYE
United Nations Development Programme Regional Director for Africa
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Let me first thank the PBC Chair for convening this discussion on the heel of the Security Council discussion on 20 June 2017 on “Peace consolidation in West Africa“.
It is my belief that the Sahel is a region, par excellence, where we can and must implement congruently the emerging doctrine of sustaining peace and the universal agenda on sustainable development.
People arrived by sea.
Unaccompanied and Separated Children (UASC) arrived by sea.
Sea arrivals disembarked in hotspots.
Dead and missing at sea.
Average EU protection rate of top nationalities arriving by sea in Italy.
Asylum-seekers relocated from Italy under the EU relocation scheme.
Between 1 and 31 January 2017, 4,467 persons arrived to Italy by sea. This is a slight decrease compared to sea arrivals at the end of January 2016 (5,273). As in previous years, monthly arrivals were comparatively lower during the winter, due to less favourable weather and sea conditions.
Between 1 and 31 January 2017, 820 children arrived in Italy by sea: 97% of them arrived unaccompanied (798). UASC account for some 18% of all sea arrivals in the above period, an increase of around 24% compared to January 2016.

The crops were harvested nearly seven months ago, the longest a season's yield has ever lasted him in the drought-prone region of West Africa's Sahel, a semi-arid belt below the Sahara stretching from Senegal to Chad.
