Réduire les risques de catastrophes en Afrique de l'Ouest

Report
IRIN

DAKAR, 18 mars 2014 (IRIN) - Des chercheurs de DARA, une organisation de recherche humanitaire à but non lucratif basée à Madrid, ont développé une nouvelle méthodologie : l'indice de réduction des risques (RRI, selon le sigle anglais). Selon eux, cet indice pourrait aider davantage de pays à évaluer et à réduire les risques d'aléas et de catastrophes naturelles. Une évaluation réalisée dans six pays d'Afrique de l'Ouest avec cet indice a cependant mis en lumière des risques omniprésents et une capacité limitée à réduire la vulnérabilité.

Varied Food Aid Techniques Save Lives and Livelihoods in Niger

Cash or food in exchange for work promotes resilience

“There is nothing left in our granaries. The harvest was very bad and we could not feed our children. I can only thank those who are helping us to have food on our plate.”

Karimou Karidjo, a 29-year-old farmer from the Tillabéri region of Niger, has had difficulty supporting his wife and four children due to poor harvests.

“I have to find food for my children. To do so, I collect and sell wood, but even then it is difficult to put food on the table,” he says.

Desperate Need in Niger: Floods and Drought Put 11 Million At Risk of Severe Hunger

Three years ago, a bad drought had millions in Niger and other countries in the Sahel region of West Africa in desperate straits. In spite of decent rainfall in 2012, many Nigeriens live so close to the edge that last year’s combination of floods and a short rainy season has plunged millions into crisis while they have to wait until this year’s harvest.

Catholic Relief Services is responding with food and seed distributions, cash for work projects, farming training and livestock distributions.

Crop Prospects and Food Situation, No. 1, March 2014

HIGHLIGHTS

  • FAO’s forecasts for global cereal production, consumption, trade and stocks in 2013/14 have all been raised since February, with overall supply conditions significantly improved compared to the previous season.

  • Export prices of wheat rose in February mainly on concerns about the 2014 winter wheat crop in the United States. Prices of maize also increased, supported by strong domestic and export demand for feed and industrial use. Overall, however, cereal export prices remained below their year-earlier levels.
