After the serious drought in the Sahel, the Network for Food Crisis Prevention was set up by the Club du Sahel partners in order to provide themselves with an informal discussion arena aimed at improving their ability to intervene in crisis situations. This book traces the Network's contribution to improving prevention and management mechanisms. The experience is generally considered to be positive, but much remains to be done to ensure optimal food security and improve coordination of interventions. The book advocates rationalizing aid and having operations increasingly overseen by nationals and locals. Adopting a regional approach is also seen as a prerequisite for more efficient prevention.
