UNDP and Japan in the Sahel
The Sahel is facing complex challenges to long-term peace, stability and development. Chronic poverty, food insecurity, compounded by climate-related shocks, conflicts cross-border crime and increased threat of terrorism, together with limited capacities of governments, have combined to create situations of extreme vulnerability.
With the support of the Government of Japan, UNDP is implementing a
programme, focusing on strengthening peace-building, governance and resilience, through 2 regional projects: Consolidation of Peace and Good Governance and Strengthening of Human Security and Community Resilience.
As part of UNDP’s wider effort to operationalize the UN integrated strategy, the 2 projects will continue tackling regional issues through targeted community-level interventions.
