Shock-Responsive Social Protection Systems Research Case study: Regional approaches to addressing food insecurity in the Sahel, and the contribution of social protection

Originally published


In this case study report (policy brief here and French version here) we explore the regional approach to addressing food insecurity in the Sahel, and consider whether and how social protection contributes to that response. The six countries of focus are Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Senegal. For further case studies from the Shock Responsive Social Protection global study, see the project's website here. This research - led by Oxford Policy Management (OPM) in consortium with the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) and INASP - is funded by UK Aid from the UK Government, as part of the UK Department for International Development's (DFID's) Humanitarian Innovation and Evidence Programme (HIEP).
