Démobiliser les anciens combattants dans le cadre d’un accord de paix n’est jamais facile, même dans les meilleures circonstances. Pourtant, du Kenya à la Somalie, des tentatives de réintégration sont de plus en plus souvent menées en plein conflit, ce qui complique énormément le processus.

Above-average rainfall and falling food prices do not signal an end to food insecurity in Africa's Sahel region

The Niger government took the brave decision last year to sound the alarm early on hunger – the rainy season, from July to September, had been well below average and a drop in food production looked likely.
