*This group is for NGO staff only*
The Trans-Sahel (or Sahara) region of West Africa has become the focal point of increased attention by international governments as they seek to limit the amount of influence extremist groups play.
Home to thousands of different ethnic, tribal, and linguistic groups, the Sahel is afflicted by both man-made and natural disasters, affecting the lives of millions.
NGO workers are increasingly being targeted for both criminal and increasingly ideological reasons. This group will seek to share information on current security issues throughout this vast territory.
