In December 2018, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs organized a stakeholder exchange on food & nutrition security in the Sahel region (notably Burkina Faso and Niger) as part of its initiative to develop of a new Sahel program focusing on food and water. KIT Royal Tropical Institute and Wageningen Economic Research were contracted to provide a descriptive overview of the food systems in Burkina Faso and Niger to support this policy process, through the partial application of the Food Systems Decision Support Tool. The descriptive analysis is based on secondary data and key informant interviews.
