West and Central Africa

Understanding the context

West and Central Africa face some of the world’s most complex challenges.  Acute and prolonged crises are deteriorating, and needs are growing. Millions of people are being driven to the edge of survival due to a confluence of factors, including conflict and violence, extreme poverty, weak governance, chronically high food insecurity and malnutrition, and the impact of climate change.

In conflict-affected regions, civilians are facing a dramatic protection crisis in an increasingly volatile context. The most vulnerable people experience multiple devastating consequences, driving persistent and fast-escalating needs. More than 1 in 10 people living in West and Central Africa (over 61 million people) will require assistance and protection in 2022.
