IPC support to West Africa 2013

IPC Global Brief Series

Oct 2013
West Africa

Since the early 2000s, the Permanent Interstate Committee for Drought Control in the Sahel (CILSS) has been engaged in the development and testing of the Harmonized Framework for the Analysis and Identification of Areas at Risk and Vulnerable Groups in the Sahel, more commonly referred to as the Cadre Harmonisé (CH). Initially the CH was tested in six countries (Burkina, Chad, Senegal, Mali, Mauritania and the Niger), with further on-going technical developments and refinement to the tools and process.

In the last two years, technical developments in the CH tools and processes have led to increased similarities and convergence between the IPC and the CH. The IPC Global Supports Unit (GSU) and other IPC Global Partners are working closely with the CILSS Technical Committee of the Harmonized Framework, which is leading to cross regional lesson-learning and the harmonization of the Cadre harmonise (CH) and the IPC.
