Preventing Food Crises in the Sahel: Ten Years of Network Experience in by Johny Egg,Jean-Jacques Gabas,Sahel Club,Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development



Following the 1984 Sahelian drought the Network for Food Crisis Prevention was established by the Club du Sahel partners. The Network serves as a discussion arena for improving the ability to intervene in crisis situations. The report traces the Network's contribution to improving prevention and management mechanisms. Following an introduction chapters cover: the development of food security policies in the Sahel; information systems; food security consultation and coordination; food aid management; and conclusions and outlook.

This book traces the Network's contribution to improving prevention and management mechanisms  . The book advocates rationalizing aid and having operations increasingly overseen by nationals and locals. Adopting a regional approach is also seen as a prerequisite for more efficient prevention.

The new architecture of the development financing is in the way of reorganization, marked by the multiplication and the diversification of the actors and the growing interweaving of the public and private financing. With sustained economic and demographic growth, a rising standard of living among its inhabitants and a growing demand for food, China has considerable efforts to make to meet the growing needs of its population. Depuis quelques annees d'importants investissements a l'initiative de "macro-acteurs" etrangers publics ou prives, originaires ou non de pays emergents (Chine, Libye, Coree du Sud, Afrique du sud, Inde, Arabie Saoudite, pays du Golfe) ou d'elites nationales, ont lieu dans les pays d'Afrique subsaharienne.

The population will continue to grow in South Asia until mid-century, and in sub-Saharan Africa until at least the end of the century. By the year 2100, Asia and Africa are expected be home to a combined population of 9 billion, out of the projected 11 billion people who will inhabit Earth. Expanding food production and economic growth have often come at a heavy cost to the natural environment.

The aims of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (hereinafter called the "Organisation") shall be to promote policies designed: (a) to achieve the highest sustainable economic growth and employment and a rising standard of living in Member countries, while maintaining financial stability, and thus to contribute to the development of the world economy; (b) to contribute to sound economic expansion in Member as well as non-member countries in the process of economic development; and. (c) to contribute to the expansion of world trade on a multilateral, non-discrimi.

When the Sahel is in the news, it is often because millions of people are at risk of going hungry. A humanitarian crisis usually unfolds on the back of a food crisis. In 2012, the lives of up to 18 million people were put at risk following a major food crisis in the region. There is now a need to break the cycle of recurrent food crises in the region, many humanitarian actors say. How is the UN assisting? Throughout this year’s lean season-the period between harvests from May to September-the World Food Programme (WFP) gave food to between 5 and 6 million people each month through its nutrition and food security programme. In Mali, the military coup of March 2012 brought an abrupt halt to 20 years of stable democracy. In its aftermath, terrorists who had occupied most of the northern region started heading south, intent on taking control of the whole country.

The Organisation for European Economic Co-operation ( OEEC ) was formed in 1948 to administer American and Canadian aid in the framework of the Marshall Plan for the reconstruction of Europe after World War II. It started its operations on 16 April 1948, and originated from the work done by the Committee of European Economic Co-operation in 1947 in preparation for the Marshall Plan. Since 1949, it was headquartered in the Château de la Muette in Paris, France. After the Marshall Plan ended, the OEEC focused on economic issues.

After the serious drought in the Sahel, the Network for Food Crisis Prevention was set up by the Club du Sahel partners in order to provide themselves with an informal discussion arena aimed at improving their ability to intervene in crisis situations. This book traces the Network's contribution to improving prevention and management mechanisms. The experience is generally considered to be positive, but much remains to be done to ensure optimal food security and improve coordination of interventions. The book advocates rationalizing aid and having operations increasingly overseen by nationals and locals. Adopting a regional approach is also seen as a prerequisite for more efficient prevention.
