What is the quickest way to find out exactly what people need? Ask them. Sounds easy enough. But in an emergency setting, collecting this kind of information can prove logistically challenging.

Key messages

  • Nigeria has successfully weathered the stress test of presidential elections. This peaceful transition has reinforced the democratisation process occurring throughout West Africa. Other crucial elections are planned in the region in the coming months.

  • Both the Ebola crisis and falling oil prices were a shock to the region. West Africa recorded 6% growth in 2014 and will continue the trend this year. The diversification of the economy, in agriculture and in services, will protect against external shocks.
