Groupe URD has been commissioned to carry out a study by UNDP and UNICEF Dakar. The objectives of the study are:

  • To look into the different analysis tools that exist, what they are used for, their weaknesses and their strengths;
  • To identify areas where the different risk analysis tools might be complementary;
  • To establish the basis for a discussion about adopting a common approach to risk analysis between development, humanitarian and state organisations conducting operations in the Sahel.

The results of the study will be presented by Groupe URD at an exchange workshop organised by UNDP in Dakar in March 2016.
