If the Sahel’s security and stability cannot be guaranteed, then neither can those of its neighbors in Africa or elsewhere. In order to adjust its engagement with the Sahel to the current circumstances, the international community needs to take lessons from the previous 20 years. This entails figuring out how to cooperate positively with the nations in the area, as well as their current leaders, in order to restore constitutional order and enhance the standard and provision of services to the populace. A high-level action plan is included in the report to guarantee that the Sahel has greater peace and prosperity than it did in the previous 20 years and beyond.
