Sahel: Major Food Crisis in 2012

According to a recent article published by Oxfam International some indicators appear to point to a food crisis in 2012 in the Sahel. As the organization underlines, this region already experienced a major food crisis in 2010, affecting ten million people. The worst however can still be avoided.
Mamadou Biteye, Oxfam Humanitarian Lead in West Africa has said that the situation is worrying for millions of people in West Africa. However she has added that “the worst is not yet inevitable” as the crisis has been identified at early stage.
Mauritania, Niger, Burkina Faso, Mali and Chad are the regions more affected. Oxfam stresses that to prevent further crises it is necessary to address the root causes and provide longer-term support.
While the EU is currently  implementing its strategy on Security and Development in the region. Kristalina Georgieva, EU commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, urges immediate action.
