Sahel Crisis: Population Movement (as of 27 Dec 2017)

Across the Sahel region, more than five million people are facing the consequences of forced displacement. Persistent instability in northern Mali, Boko Haram-related violence and insecurity in the Lake Chad Basin, and the impact of the conflict in the neighbouring Central African Republic continue to cause massive population displacements and hinder the return of displaced people to their homes.
