While commentators in the West continue to speak of the ‘What ifs’ in terms of climate change, such detached contemplation is not possible for the herders and farmers of Africa’s arid regions. Over the past ten years, eastern Africa and the Sahel have set new highs for record temperatures with alarming regularity. While some meteorologists speculated that increasing temperatures would draw more rainfall to the region, thus far the result has been less predictable weather and sustained droughts. As a direct result, according to the United Nations, 80% of the Sahel’s farmland is degraded.
In October 2018, Alliance2015 partners Concern Worldwide and Welthunger Hilfe released the 13th annual Global Hunger Index (GHI). The report details the state of hunger and malnutrition in the world and offers recommendations for how to address the root causes of this global issue. Notably, in the 2018 edition, the GHI also links the issue of food security to trends in mass migration, suggesting that hunger, like displacement, is the result of political circumstances, not environmental or natural causes.

NIAMEY [ACTED News] - The joint report by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Food Programme, “Food security and humanitarian implications in Western Africa and in the Sahel”, published in December 2011, reports that the Sahelian Belt accounted for a 2.5 million metric ton cereal deficit. Import predictions should provide balance, but availability is unequal in the region, in a context that has seen dry cereal prices continuously increase since November.
