The African Leaders’ Dialogue, held in Kigali in August 2019, on Food Security (AFSLD) defined a vision for a more resilient African food system. To help make this vision a reality, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the Permanent Inter-State Committee for Drought Control in the Sahel (CILSS) and the West and Central Africa Council for Agricultural Research and Development (CORAF) are launching a program on food security (FSRP) in the context of climate change in West Africa with the financial support of the World Bank.

The program will fund investments in three mutually reinforcing thematic areas: (1) Digital advisory services for the prevention and management of agricultural and food crises; (2) Sustainability and adaptability of the productive base of the food system (sustainable management of land and watersheds, agro-ecological approaches); and (3) Market integration and trade (development of the regional staple food value chain).

CORAF will be responsible for coordinating the implementation of the component on Sustainability and adaptability of the productive base of the food system. As such, it will benefit from a subsidy from the IDA regional fund and this requires the triggering of several instruments of the environmental and social management framework. These include:

  1. Stakeholder Engagement Plan (SEP)
  2. Labor Management Procedures (LMP)
  3. (ESMF)
  4. The Environmental and Social Commitment Plan (ESCP)
