The Sahel region is characterised by semi-arid lanscapes where the herding lifestyle is prevalent

At least 15 million are at risk of food insecurity in the Sahel in 2012, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. The traditional summer lean season will start early and be particularly difficult this year due to drought, harvest deficits, rising food prices and conflicts. CBM and its partners in Niger and Chad are implementing emergency response activities targeting the most vulnerable households and persons with disabilities.
