Addressing the food crisis in Sahel: EU Aid to Senegal

In the context of the looming food crisis which has long plagued the Sahel region, the EU, along with the UN World Food Programme (WFP), will provide food aid to Senegal, for the 314 000 most vulnerable people in the areas most at risk - Casamance (Ziguinchor, Sedhiou and Kolda), Tambacounda, Kédougou and Matam.
Accordingly, Andris Piebalgs, Commissioner for Development, recalled that food crisis is threatening hundreds of thousands of lives in Senegal. “We must show solidarity and support the Senegalese Government at this difficult juncture, in both the short and medium terms. The aid we are giving today is in addition to our efforts to reinforce Senegal’s agricultural systems and make the Sahel region countries more resilient to external shocks", he concluded.
