This status report for the period 2018–2019 offers insight into how Norway is following up the Sahel strategy via various channels, without going into detail about every aspect of the activities or providing specifics about overall achievement of objectives.
The strategy for Norway’s efforts in the Sahel region (2018–2020) was published in September 2018 and is currently available in Norwegian, English and French. The strategy has provided a framework for strengthening Norwegian efforts during this period.
The strategy defines three primary objectives for Norwegian efforts in the Sahel region:
- to promote conflict prevention and conflict resolution;
- to promote political stabilisation and enhance security;
- to build resilience and lay the foundation for inclusive economic, social and political development, with a view to improving living conditions and reducing the need for humanitarian aid.
