Shoring Up Stability – Adressing climate and fragility risks in the Lake Chad region, Janani Vivekananda & al., Adelphi, May 2019.
The conflict in the Lake Chad region affects several countries and has left more than 10 million people in need of humanitarian assistance. Climate change is having major negative repercussions on the conflict, intensifying the existing dynamics and creating new risks. The communities in this region are therefore vulnerable to both the impacts of climate change and the ongoing conflict. If the region is to escape the conflict trap, it will be necessary to tackle the effects of climate change as part of peace consolidation efforts. This report describes the main risks that exist and proposes pragmatic solutions to reinforce stability in the region.

Risk-informed development: from crisis to resilience, S. Opitz-Stapleton & al., ODI, May 2019.
The international aid sector is having to face new and emerging threats, including climate change, economic and financial instability, antibiotic resistance, transnational criminal networks and terrorism, cyber fragility, geopolitical volatility and conflict. These threats are interconnected, they cross national borders and they are occurring simultaneously. Growing awareness of these challenges is leading to calls by governments, the international development community and donors for an approach to development that takes account of these complex risks. Risk-informed development is a risk-based decision process that enables development to become more sustainable and resilient. The report analyses the issues that it raises.

Analyse de l’aide accordée aux pays du Sahel. Première partie : Analyse à partir des statistiques du Comité d’aide au développement de l’OCDE, D. Barret, A. Kéré, S. Guillaumont Jeanneney, Chaire Sahel, FERDI, Dec. 18.
Given its economic, social, environmental and security vulnerability, the Sahel zone is a priority for numerous donors. This report analyses the flow of aid to the countries of the Sahel according to the statistics of the DAC. The subsequent objective is then to compare the aid to each country as accounted for by the DAC with the figures given by those responsible for managing the funds in each beneficiary country. After a general presentation of transferable aid in the Sahel, its characteristics are analysed. The last chapter is devoted to comparing payments and commitments as a way of analysing disbursement times.
