RIAC and ICRC Report No. 77 / 2022

The Sahel region is characterized by ecological instability and limited arable land. In addition, the region is characterized by a high birth rate, gender inequality and an inefficient education system. The population of the region is constantly under attack by Islamist fundamentalist groups, suffers from threats and violence, and the level of security in the region is very low. Inefficient governance, incomplete and weak economic reforms, corruption at the state level lead to armed conflicts, internal instability and, as a result, impoverishment of the population and forced migration.

The authors of the report analyze the causes of economic and political crises in the region, consider the main actors of conflicts and suggest some ways to overcome crises.
