Since 2007 the number of affected people by floods in West Africa is increasing.
In 2012, heavy rainfalls resulted into widespread floods affecting more than 3 million people in West and Central Africa, especially in Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Senegal.
A large part of the affected people are already highly vulnerable due to the Food Security and Nutrition Crisis in the Sahel.
