Combatting the Food Shortages and Strengthening the Resilience of Populations in the Sahel: Lessons Learned from the 2012 Crisis


Service: Research

Countries/Region: Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger

Year: 2013

AIMS and consortium partners CERDES and A&B Consulting undertook a study to analyze the links between vulnerability to food crisis in the Sahel and existing inequalities in access, management and ownership of tangible resources by men and women. The objectives were to better understand the gender dimensions of the crisis to assist Oxfam in developing appropriate short and long-term resilience-building intervention strategies, and to develop a conceptual research framework. The team undertook case studies in 13 communities in three countries.
