Standing in solidarity with the people of Mali, Burkina Faso & Niger, 35+ local, regional & international organisations launched the People’s Coalition for the Sahel. They are calling for a new approach to insecurity in the Sahel, based on four pillars:
- People’s Pillars #1: Put the protection of civilians and human security at the heart of the response in the Sahel.
- People’s Pillars #2: Create a comprehensive political strategy to address the root causes of insecurity.
- People’s Pillars #3: Respond to humanitarian emergencies and ensuring that aid is responsive to development.
- People’s Pillars #4: Combat impunity and ensure access to justice for all.
