The Sahel and West Africa Week 2015
The Sahel and West Africa Week 2015 will take place in Milan from 26 to 30 October. Organised in collaboration with Expo Milano 2015, the Week will raise public awareness of the Expo’s theme “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life” from a West African perspective.
The Expo represents a unique opportunity for stakeholders and partners to showcase their achievements and to share knowledge on how to improve food and nutrition security and increase resilience in the region. The Week will bring together regional organisations, representatives from West African governments and OECD countries, and experts in several events, including a two-day Forum to discuss the impact of on-going transformations on food security and resilience; a special session of the Food Crisis Prevention Network (RPCA) and a meeting of the Senior Experts Group of the Global Alliance for Resilience (AGIR) – Sahel and West Africa.
The Week is organised by the Sahel and West Africa Club and its Members and partners, by invitation of the European Union.
The BRACED Christian Aid "Zaman Lebidi" programme in Burkina Faso will be exhibiting at the expo.
