Overview

The Early Warning Early Action initiative has been developed with the understanding that disaster losses and emergency response costs can be drastically reduced by using early warning analysis to act before a crisis escalates into an emergency. Early actions strengthen the resilience of at-risk populations, mitigate the impact of disasters and help communities, governments and national and international humanitarian agencies to respond more effectively and efficiently.

  • La régularité des pluies depuis le mois de juillet dans la majeure partie de la région a permis un développement satisfaisant des cultures qui sont au stade de reproduction-maturation. Aux nouvelles récoltes de maïs, arachide et d’igname provenant des pays côtiers s’ajoutent les récoltes en vert dans les pays sahéliens. En dépit des dégâts de déprédateurs dont la chenille légionnaire, la réunion du PREGEC de septembre 2018 tenue à Lomé évalue les perspectives de récoltes 2018/19 de moyennes à bonnes.
