Women and men access, use, and benefit from water differently; yet due to existing gender disparities, their relationship to water is often unequal.

An outbreak has developed in western Mauritania and seasonal rains have ended in the Desert Locust summer breeding areas in the Sahel of West Africa and Sudan. As annual vegetation continues to dry out, Desert Locusts are concentrating and forming groups in those areas that remain green. This is most evident in Mauritania but it is also occurring on a smaller scale in northern Niger, northeast Chad and northern Sudan.
