2012 Sahel Food & Nutrition Crisis: response by ECHO & partners

Together with its partners, The European Union Humanitarian Aid (ECHO) contributed to the early recognition of the 2012 food and nutrition crisis and to formulating an adequate response. In total, ECHO mobilized €173 million for the food and nutrition crisis, in addition to €58 million to address needs arising from the Mali conflict. This was the highest ever envelope allocated to humanitarian aid in the Sahel by ECHO, more than three times the amount in 2011 and twice the amount mobilized during the last nutrition crisis in 2010.

This document provides a summary of ECHO´s response to the 2012 Sahel food & nutrition crisis as well as a non exhaustive illustration of some of the work that was achieved thanks to its partners.
