Niger: The Sahel: 2011-2013 CERF allocations (as of 11 Dec 2013)

One of the biggest challenges for the humanitarian community since 2011 was the severe food insecurity and malnutrition situation across the Sahel. The crisis affected more than 18 million people in eight countries, and 1 million children under age 5 were at risk of malnutrition. Successive droughts, combined with conflict, displacement and cholera outbreaks, exacerbated the crisis.
Since the crisis began in 2011, CERF has allocated more than US$171 million to countries in the Sahel to improve food security and nutrition, help displaced people and prevent disease outbreaks. The $60.8 million allocated this year accounts for almost 13 per cent of all CERF allocations in 2013.
