Revision of the Consolidated Appeal for West Africa 2005

11 March 2005

In view ofsignificant effects of the Desert Locust invasion in West Africa during the second half of 2004 and the change in the political/security situation within the region since the development of the United Nations (UN) Consolidated Appeal 2005 (CA), UN Regional Representatives and Non-governmental Organization (NGO) partners as well as other humanitarian partners decided to review the situation analysis provided in the Common Humanitarian Action Plan (CHAP) for 2005 and to prepare a supplementary chapter (addendum) for the Regional Appeal. 

The Addendum includes projects that aim to mitigate the damage caused by the Desert Locusts and to ameliorate the food security situation for the affected populations, many of whom have lost their harvest, pasture and have had their livelihoods seriously affected.

As humanitarian concerns and priorities for humanitarian response and the sector response plans remain essentially the same, the CAP was not completely revised.
