Publication

The Sahel, the vast semi-arid region of Africa separating the Sahara Desert to the north and tropical savannas to the south, is as much a land of opportunities as it is of challenges. It is endowed with abundant human, cultural and natural resources, offering tremendous potential for rapid growth.

Therefore, the United Nations Secretariat, Agencies, Funds, Programmes and Country Teams, are working assiduously with the people of the Sahel to meet their objective to establish a peaceful and prosperous Sahel. The UN is doing this under the auspices of the United Nations Integrated Strategy for the Sahel (UNISS), which is at the center of the international response in the Sahel in accordance with Security Council Resolution 2391 (2017).

VOICES FROM THE SAHEL


The Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection. More important than ever, the goals provide a critical framework for COVID-19 recovery

The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
