Population, Security, and Development in the Sahel

  • Wilson Center 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20004 United States (map)

The UN is calling the quadruple threat of famine in Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, and Yemen, “the world’s largest crisis since 1945.” But parts of the African Sahel could be heading for an even bigger catastrophe in the years ahead. The window of opportunity for a much-needed push in foreign assistance to address population, security, and development trends is closing fast, say some experts.

Wilson Center is hosting a panel presentation with experts from the University of California Berkeley, University of Niamey, and the Ferdi Foundation. The panel will explore demographic projections, the link between security and development, and how strategic international aid can help shape the future of the Sahel.
