The People’s Coalition for the Sahel is an informal and diverse alliance of civil society organizations, including the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, that amplifies Sahelian voices and expertise to urge governments in the Sahel and elsewhere to resolve the conflict and humanitarian crisis in the Sahel.
On 13 April the People’s Coalition for the Sahel released its first report on the situation in the Sahel entitled “The Sahel: What needs to change.” The report recommends a radical reorientation from the current counterterrorism and militaristic approach to the crisis in the Sahel, to one that prioritizes civilian protection, dialogue between all parties to the conflict, tackling corruption, improved access to aid and an end to impunity.
