Summary of conclusions - RPCA restricted meeting 2020

While countries develop their strategies to counter the Coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19), members of the Food Crisis Prevention Network (RPCA) call upon all stakeholders to act immediately to provide rapid support to some 17 million people facing a food and nutrition crisis as well as 50 million people, currently “stressed”, who risk falling into the “crisis” phase by June-August 2020. Urgent support must be provided to countries in the implementation of their national response plans.

Covid-19 risks overshadowing and compounding the already severe food and nutrition crisis in the Sahel and West Africa. Several tens of millions of people are threatened. The region’s stability could be at risk.
