Restricted RPCA Meeting

Paris, OECD headquarters, 14-16 April 2014

Some 120 RPCA Members gathered in Paris to assess the 2013-14 agro-pastoral campaign. Despite a total cereal production of 57 million tonnes, Network members expressed concern about the food and nutrition situation, especially that of vulnerable populations : 28 out of 345 areas examined within the Harmonised Framework are already categorised as “critical food insecure”; they are located in Chad, The Gambia, Mali, Niger and Senegal. About 4.9 million people are currently in immediate need of assistance. Their number could reach 8 million people between June and August if appropriate actions are not implemented. RPCA Members also discussed terms of reference for the first external evaluation of the Charter for Food Crisis Prevention and Management. Within the RPCA, AGIR stakeholders took stock of the status of implementation of the AGIR national inclusive dialogues. Among the high-level participants were HE Mr Moussa Mahamat Aggrey, CILSS Co-ordinator Minister and Chadian Minister in charge of agriculture and irrigation, HE Mr Mahama Zoungrana, Burkinabe Minister in charge of agriculture and food security and HE Mr Ibrahim Hassane Mayaki, CEO NEPAD-Agency as well as Mr Claus Sorenson, ECHO Director-General for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection, Mr Franklin Moore, USAID Deputy Assistant Administrator and Mr Robert Piper, UN Regional Humanitarian Co-ordinator for the Sahel. The 30th RPCA annual meeting will be held in early December, most likely in Lomé.

RPCA annual meetings

The annual meeting allows stakeholders to define the strategic orientations of the Network’s priority work areas, and to strengthen the co-ordination and synergy of on-going actions. The meeting ususally takes place every month of November/December and is jointly organised by the Executive Secretariat of the Permanent Interstate Committee for Drought Control in the Sahel (CILSS) and the Secretariat of the Sahel and West Africa Club (SWAC/OECD) under the patronage of ECOWAS and UEMOA. This event also offers an occasion to assess the preliminary prospects of the current agro-pastoral campaign and to analyse the food and nutritional situation, in order to convene in advance on the necessary measures to prevent possible crisis situations.
