West Africa & Sahel

Our work here is:

  • In Mali, where HSC is working with partners to address systemic problems underlying conflict and violence, and is developing, with women, youth, community and religious leaders, a human security approach to address security-related problems faced by communities. 
  • In Nigeria, capacitating local NPO partners on the FATF process, and helping build their engagement and advocacy strategies with relevant authorities to mitigate the impact of counter-terror rules and regulations on their operating space.

  • Regionally, with GIABA, the FATF-Style Regional Body for West Africa, and with G-5 Sahel, the body overseeing regional cooperation for development policies and security matters in West Africa (comprising five Sahel countries: Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, and Niger).
