Climate, Food, Trade: Linkages in West Africa

West Africa is characterised by some of the most variable climates on the planet, which have been partly responsible for important food shortages in the region. Further, the hunger situation has been worsened by the inefficiency of regional trade that hinders efficient food supply to climate-hit areas. This briefing paper explores these linkages between Climate, Food and Trade in West Africa, and to what extent they are taken into account by regional and national stakeholders when implementing policies and programmes.
