Les plus graves niveaux d’insécurité alimentaire persisteront dans le nord-est du Nigeria
Millet, rice, and sorghum constitute the basic staple foods for the majority of the Malian population. Millet has traditionally been the most widely consumed, but since 2005 rice has become a popular substitute in urban households. Sorghum is generally more important for rural than urban households. Markets included are indicative of local conditions within their respective regions. Ségou is one of the most important markets for both the country and region because it is located in a very large grain production area.
West Africa can be divided into three agro-ecological zones or three different trade basins (West Basin, Central Basin and East Basin). Both important for understanding market behavior and dynamics.

(Ouagadougou, 24 novembre 2016) - Le Sous-secrétaire général des Nations Unies et Coordonnateur humanitaire régional pour le Sahel, Toby Lanzer, termine aujourd’hui une visite de quatre jours au Burkina Faso et réaffirme son soutien à l’approche coordonnée entre le gouvernement et les acteurs humanitaires et de développement.
BAMAKO – The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is happy to announce that the Belgian Government has contributed USD 2.2 million to help nearly 115,000 vulnerable persons in Mali.
“The Belgian Government has been working alongside the Malian Government for more than 20 years. It remains committed to Mali and its people and will continue supporting populations, especially vulnerable communities in northern Mali who bear the brunt of the crisis,” Myriam Bcquelaine, Chief of Belgium’s Diplomatic Corps in Mali in said.
WFP continues to face critical funding constraints that threatens the continuation of its resilience activities and risks to reverse the important gains and investments made in recent years. For Malian refugees a challenging transition strategy which moves towards vulnerability targeting and self-reliance is being finalized.
The PRRO evaluation survey confirms the positive trends of resilience indicators amongst the very poor populations.

Syntèse par pays
The quest of the last 15 years to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) taught us that Global Goals can motivate and help sustain leaps in human progress. It also taught us that the specifics matter. In some places, the MDGs became a widely-recognized, consistent and important driver of local progress; in others, the role and impact of the MDGs was more ambiguous. A lot depended on way the MDGs were implemented: if local change agents made them meaningful locally; if local leaders drew on their legitimacy and visibility; if they were employed to solve real-life problems etc.
