Baltissen, G.; Brouwer, J.H.; Peters, Bram; Plataroti, Lavinia


This regional profile, commissioned by The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Department of Inclusive Green Growth), gives a snapshot of what is happening in the closely related themes Food & Nutrition Security, Water and Climate and Renewable Energy in the Sahel region. It provides basic statistics on the region’s performance on key indicators and indexes, but also analyses relevant policies, current donor interventions, and the main trends on the abovementioned themes. Combined with an overview of Dutch support to the Sahel, this profile ends by suggesting possible priority directions for The Netherlands.
