5th Floor, Woodrow Wilson Center

Population, Security, and Development in the Sahel

Webcast available

Webcast Recap

The UN is calling the quadruple threat of famine in Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, and Yemen, “the world’s largest crisis since 1945.” But parts of the African Sahel could be heading for an even bigger catastrophe in the years ahead. The window of opportunity for a much-needed push in foreign assistance to address population, security, and development trends is closing fast, say some experts.

Please join the Wilson Center in a panel presentation with experts from the University of California Berkeley, University of Niamey, and the Ferdi Foundation. The panel will explore demographic projections, the link between security and development, and how strategic international aid can help shape the future of the Sahel.

Media guests, including TV crews, are welcome and should RSVP directly to Benjamin.Dills@wilsoncenter.org. Media bringing heavy electronics MUST indicate this in their response so they may be cleared through our building security and allowed entrance. Please err toward responding if you would like to attend.

Want to attend but can’t? Tune into the live or archived webcast at WilsonCenter.org (not every event is webcast live; archived webcasts go up approximately one day after the meeting date).
