“This document presents an assessment of the quality of the crop production season in West and Central Africa. The analysis is limited to the Sahelian zone of West Africa and provides a status of biomass production at mid-wintering season (end of August). The year 2022 follows a wintering season in 2021 that was negative but close to normal for almost the entire Sahelian zone, with several pastoral zones recording negative biomass production anomalies. The economic context of the region is still marked by the consequences of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, in addition to the long-term repercussions of the measures taken by the states to combat COVID-19. The frequency of climatic extremes further increases people’s vulnerability, and the 2022 rainy season is marked by heavy flooding.”
