development of countries in the Sahel region is slowing due to radicalization, youth unemployment and the lack of participation by women in politics and the economy.
That’s according to the UN Office for West Africa, UNOWA.
In 2014, a partnership was formed by the United Nations with Sahelian countries, called the G5, which aims to tackle these challenges.
Cristina Silveiro has been speaking to Kouider Zerrouk, a spokesperson for UNOWA.
She began by asking him to describe the main challenges facing the region.
