KEY DRIVERS OF THE CRISIS

  • Endemic of food insecurity due to crop failure/ poor harvest, rising food prices and loss of livelihoods as a result of frequent natural disasters (droughts, floods).

  • Lack of integrated early warning systems to facilitate early response and assist affected populations to cope better with shocks

  • Poor sanitation and access to clean water are main causes of waterborne diseases. Prevalence of epidemics, lack of access to adequate health services and poor health service delivery.

  • Lack of lasting peace in southern Senegal leading to sporadic inflow of refugees.
