Editorial: «Le Sahel, un espace menaçant et menacé»

Le Sahel n’est pas une région comme une autre. Longtemps considérée comme l’une des régions les plus pauvres au monde, le Sahel se trouve aujourd’hui simultanément confronté aux effets pervers du changement climatique, au terrorisme, à la montée en puissance du crime organisé transfrontalier, et à la prolifération d’armes et de milices, face à des pays dépourvus de capacités administratives, économiques, militaires, policières et douanières adéquates pour affronter ces multiples périls.

Editorial: "The Sahel, a threatening and threatened space"

The Sahel is not a region like any other.

Long regarded as one of the poorest in the world, the Sahel is now simultaneously faced with the adverse effects of climate change, terrorism, the rise of cross-border organized crime, and the proliferation of weapons and militias, affecting countries lacking the required administrative, economic, military, police and customs capacity to deal with these multiple perils.
