About our work in the Sahel and North Africa:
The work of the CPA Community in the Sahel and North Africa focuses on Tunisia and Libya in the North Africa region, and in Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger regarding the Sahel.
The activities in the Sahel and North Africa under the implementation of the Community Protection Approach and its components, such as the Individual Protection Approach (IPA) have the goal of putting the focus directly on the communities and the individuals.
