Just after World Food Day, this event launches the new report Escaping the hunger cycle: pathways to resilience in the Sahel, commissioned by the Sahel Working Group. It guides decision makers to strengthen preparedness, early response and rural livelihoods; and emphasise policies on social protection, disaster risk reduction, malnutrition and food price volatility. This important research has already generated considerable interest among the aid community and policy makers in the Sahel. It is based on interviews with over 70 practitioners, researchers, representatives from donors, governments and the UN, as well as field visits in Niger and Chad, and relevant literature and reports. The agencies from the Sahel Working Group that have commissioned this report are CAFOD, Christian Aid, CARE International UK, Concern Worldwide, Oxfam GB, Plan UK, Save the Children UK, Tearfund and World Vision UK.
