RPCA restricted meeting, Paris, 16-18 April 2018

 

The 2017-18 agro-pastoral campaign in the 17 Sahelian and West African countries was mixed. A difficult end to the rainy season had serious implications for crops and fodder production. The regional consultation of the Food Crisis Prevention Network (RPCA - Niamey, February 2018) confirmed a critical pastoral situation in the Sahel, where fodder production is significantly lower compared to the five-year average, particularly in Mauritania (deficit of 95%) and Senegal (deficit of 80%). This has led to early cross-border transhumance and the risk of conflict in host countries. Against this backdrop, the restricted meeting provides a special focus on the pastoral situation. Participants formulated recommendations for decision-makers to take immediate action but also adopt measures to help the region better anticipate and prevent such crises. | Policy Brief

Key events

Draft Agenda

RPCA Steering Committee meeting

The 16th April is open to a restricted group of Network Members who will meet for the first RPCA Steering Committee meeting to discuss implementing the RPCA reforms.  In parallel, civil society actors will discuss the implementation of their Engagement and Accountability Framework on the application of the PREGEC Charter.

A thematic session will deepen the discussion on addressing food and nutrition issues in urban areas.

 

agricultural, food and nutrition situation

What is the current and projected food and nutrition situation in the region? What measures are required to address the critical pastoral situation and how can the funding gap be closed? How effective are national response plans and how can they be strengthened? These questions will be the focus of discussion during this session. 

The session will capitalise on the analysis of the Cadre harmonisé validated at the PREGEC regional consultation meeting, Ouagadougou, 26-28 March 2018 

 

Senior Experts' Group meeting of the Global Alliance for Resilience (SEG-AGIR)


Sharing success stories on strengthening resilience inspires and catalyses progress. From the progress made by Niger in implementing its “National Resilience Priorities” (NRP-AGIR) to new tools designed to promote mutual learning and the sharing of best practices, this session aims to open up the discussion on progress made in terms of strengthening resilience: what factors contribute to success and what challenges have yet to be overcome? 

 

Participants

Held under the patronage of the Commissions of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the West African Economic and Monetary Union (UEMOA), the restricted meeting brings together some 200 stakeholders from the region and West African partners. The Permanent Interstate Committee for Drought Control in the Sahel (CILSS) and the Sahel and West Africa Club Secretariat (SWAC/OECD) are organising the meeting.
