Governance and security in the Sahel: tackling mobility, demography and climate change

With Istituto Affari Internazionali

This research project will firstly analyze the factors underpinning good governance in the Sahel, and secondly will consider how the quality of governance is influenced by and can affect the management of demographic changes, climate change and mobility.

After an overview of good governance practices in the Sahel, the first part of the project will investigate these dynamics through specific case studies and approaches. The first will analyze governance, climate change and security challenges in the Lake Chad Basin area. The second case study will focus on assessing the impact of climate change, mobility and demographic change on women and girls in the region. Then, the last working stream will investigate on demographic changes and mobility in Niger. Finally, the second part of the project will focus on the role of the EU and the foreign powers in the region.

The project foresees a number of activities including the publication of a volume, and the organisation of a series of outreach and dissemination activities. An international conference in Burkina Faso will develop policy recommendations addressed to different international actors. Further promotional activities will aim at the dissemination of these policy recommendations.
