STORYLINE:

At a high-level ministerial conference on the Central Sahel held Tuesday, 24 donors pledged nearly USD 1.7 billion to scale up life-saving humanitarian aid to millions of people in Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger.

The amount includes USD 985.3 million for 2020 and USD 704.2 million for 2021 and beyond.

Once released, the funds will help some ten million people for the remainder of this year and through 2021 with nutrition and food, health services, water and sanitation, shelter, education, protection and support to survivors of gender-based violence.

The virtual conference was co-hosted by Denmark, Germany, the European Union and the United Nations.

People living in the border region between Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger are now at an epicentre of conflict, poverty and climate change.

More than 13 million people in the region need humanitarian assistance. The number of people facing acute hunger has tripled over the past year to reach 7.4 million. Some 1.5 million people are internally displaced, a twentyfold increase over two years. And lockdowns and other COVID-19 prevention measures have pushed an additional six million people into extreme poverty.
