Key Messages

  • According to the results of the PREGEC meeting held in Abidjan from 19 to 21 November 2018, projected 2018/19 cereal production in the Sahel and West Africa will reach 74.2 million tons, up 8 and 19 percent respectively from last year and the five-year average. Tuber production is also up 21 percent from the average and legume and oilseed production is up 29 percent. This will result in good household food availability and diversity, which will improve consumption and income through the sale of part of the harvest.
