KEY DRIVERS OF THE CRISIS

  • Food insecurity and overall vulnerability are results of recurring natural hazards (droughts, floods), increasing food prices and overall scarcity of resources.

  • The country continues to host Malian refugees; their returns are contingent on restoring peace and security in Northern Mali.

  • Weak access to water and hygiene aggravates the spread of epidemics (Rift Valley fever, cholera and meningitis), particularly during the rainy season.
