FAO’s Sub-regional Emergency and Rehabilitation Office - West Africa/Sahel
FAO’s first priority is to help crisis-affected farming families – many of whom have lost all of their productive assets such as seeds and livestock – produce their own food and rebuild their lives and livelihoods as quickly as possible. At the same time, FAO’s emergency assistance increasingly supports and feeds into longer-term efforts to reduce risks due to multiple hazards.
For 2013, FAO is requesting a total of USD 135.3 million for livelihood interventions in the Sahel. To start the operations for the main agricultural campaign (May – October 2013), USD 99 million are immediately required. We need urgent assistance to support vulnerable people in need.
