The Sahel rarely makes headlines. Until the early 2000s, it was on the margins of geopolitical interest and of humanitarian action and debate. Today, the Sahel is on center stage because a complex crisis, that has potential ramification far beyond the region, is brewing there. The impending crisis is due to a set of interconnected factors including:
the emergence of conflicts, strong non-state armed and non-armed actors, transnational criminal networks, and a counterterrorism agenda
Converging challenges, compounding risks - A region under high pressure
On 15 May, local authorities conducted a rescue at sea operation in Tajourah in Tripoli. 115 migrants were rescued, 50 of whom were women. IOM’s partners from Multakana centre went to the location and are working to provide the rescued migrants with medical assistance, clothes, and Hygiene Kits. There is no information available yet about the migrants’ nationalities.
In the Sahel, extreme poverty, fast-growing populations, climate change, recurrent food and nutrition crises, armed conflicts and insecurity are building up to a perfect storm threatening the lives of communities already living on the brink of crisis.
The region is one of the world’s climate change hotspots. Increasingly unpredictable weather patterns, more frequent droughts and floods and land degradation threaten the livelihoods of a population in which the majority relies on agriculture for survival.
