High-Level Conference on Sahel food crisis “Addressing the emergency, investing in resilience”: welcoming and opening statement by Kristalina Georgieva

347 views

On 18 June 2012, Kristalina Georgieva, Member of the EC in charge of International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, participated in the high level consultation meeting on the Sahel food crisis. On this occasion, she gave an opening speech and addressed the emergency of the situation in the Sahel region. The meeting aims to launch a new partnership on strengthening the resilience of the Sahel to future crises. The initiative, called AGIR Sahel (Alliance Globale pour l'Initiative Resilience), has one core aim: to make sure that the people in the Sahel can better cope with future droughts. The European Commission is increasing its humanitarian funding to the Sahel by €40 million, bringing its response to the food crisis to €337 million. This extra funding comes just weeks before the food crisis is set to peak across the region where 18 million people are in danger from hunger.
