Emergency Development Programme

In 2018, the Heads of State of the G5 Sahel requested the Permanent Secretariat of the G5 Sahel (SPG5 Sahel) to launch, as a matter of urgency, quick-impact projects. Thus, they launched the Emergency Development Programme (EDP) in the fragile regions bordering the three intervention zones of the Joint Force.

The West zone (on the border between Mauritania and Mali)
The Central Spindle (at the junction between Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger)
The Eastern Spindle (on the border between Niger and Chad)

The members of the Sahel Alliance support the Emergency Development Programme. Discover the projects below:
