The semiarid Sahel region spans from the Sahara Desert in the north to the humid savannahs in the south. The countries in the Sahel region are among the poorest and least developed in the world. The food crisis is widespread and there are several on-going military conflicts in the region.

The Swedish support to the Sahel region is focused on Chad, Niger, Mali and Nigeria, with additional support to Cameroon, Burkina Faso and Mauritania.
