How to overcome the pessimism?

The situation in the Sahel has worsened in the last 10 years, especially in the area of security. Great swathes of land have fallen into a vicious cycle where poverty and insecurity are mutually reinforcing. Unless local authorities and the international community take concerted and decisive action, these areas could succumb to a series of conflicts from which they will struggle to emerge. High-level panelists will discuss possible evolutions in European development policies to invest in the security and development nexus to avoid a costly and permanent crisis, driven by mutually reinforcing poverty, criminal activity and armed conflict.
