Note d’information et de veille – Juin 2020 – Impact de la crise du COVID-19 sur la sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle au Sahel et en Afrique de l’Ouest
Exacerbation de la crise alimentaire et nutritionnelle malgré l’assouplissement des mesures de restriction pour la relance des
Despite their relaxation, public health measures to address COVID-19 continue to exacerbate the ongoing Food and Nutrition Crisis
The close monitoring system of the food and nutrition situation, launched in April 2020, was able to cover 14 countries by the end of June 2020 (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cabo Verde, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Chad and Togo). At June, 30th, a total of 70 384 positive Covid-19 cases, 3,319 cases recovered and 1,432 death are recorded.
During the observation period, public health measures were lessened, thus improving a gradual return to the implementation
of certain income-generating activities, access to inputs and agricultural manual labour. Despite this regional trend, some
countries such as Chad, Nigeria, Niger, Senegal, Burkina Faso and Mali continue to face difficult situations in some areas. Markets are
now functioning and operating at an acceptable level, with a good level of supplies, but with a generalised rising trend in the prices
of basic consumer goods (Northern Nigeria, Benin, Chad, Ghana, Guinea, Senegal and Sierra Leone).
