The West African region is confronted with an increasing number of inter-connected and transnational challenges, which constitute obstacles to integration and development. More than 130 million people in the region live in extreme poverty, a population that is particularly vulnerable to food insecurity, recurrent natural disasters, climate change, economic crisis and socio-political instability. The effects and humanitarian consequences of natural and human-made disasters are diverse and include population movements, destruction of property and key socio-economic infrastructure, epidemics, food insecurity and malnutrition, and a further weakening of state capacities to manage these challenges.
