Since 2012, armed conflict has escalated in the central Sahel, leading to a continuous increase in forced displacement. Currently, 2.8 million people are internally displaced across Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger, countries which also host 411,190 refugees including those originating from the central Sahel.

In recent years the deterioration of the security and humanitarian situation in Burkina Faso has generated refugee movements towards Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana and Togo. The number of asylum seekers arriving in the northern regions of these four countries, rose to 87,000 at the start of 2024, of which 89% were from Burkina Faso, the majority, women and children. 

The 2024 Gulf of Guinea Joint Response Plan led by WFP, UNICEF, UNHCR and IOM is a humanitarian response plan that interacts with existing development interventions in the northern regions of Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana and Togo. Its aim is to support national authorities to bridge the gap between humanitarian and development interventions by ensuring complementarity with development initiatives.
