Background

In response to the Sahel crisis, the United Nations adopted the United Nations Integrated Strategy for the Sahel (SINUS) in June 2013, which focuses on three strategic objectives: (i) Promoting inclusive governance throughout the region; (ii) The development of national and regional security mechanisms capable of dealing with cross-border threats; (iii) Integrating humanitarian and development interventions to ensure long-term resilience. Three regional working groups, corresponding to the three strategic objectives, have been set up to identify and implement relevant activities at national and regional level.
UNDP coordinates the Regional Working Group on Governance of SINUS. In this regard, he has worked with UN agencies to define priority areas for intervention in the area of governance, namely: support for reform of electoral systems, support for judicial reform and, in close collaboration with the Regional Security Working Group, supporting communities living in cross-border areas to combat insecurity and violent extremism.
 In addition, UNDP has defined a strategic approach for the Sahel based on the objectives of the "SINUS" and its comparative advantages: its neutrality, its commitment to sustainable human development, its role in coordinating partners' interventions. development, its presence in all the countries of the region and its organization as a network of knowledge.
