Instability in the Sahel community
The Sahel Community or “The Sudan Region” is composed of Sudan, Chad, Eritrea, Niger, Mali, Senegal, Gambia, Mauritania, Burkina Faso, and Guinea-Bissau. It is the partially dry and wet transitional middle zone in Africa; from the Sahara northwards to the South Sudan Savanna and from Eretria East to Mauritania West. There are some other countries whose regions are partially in the Sahel zone such as Northern Nigeria, Northern Cameroon, Northern Central African Republic, Northern Ethiopia, Southern Libya and Southern Algeria. The instability in these countries is resulting from poverty, diseases, terrorism, environmental crisis, hunger, economic crisis and war. Jihadist insurrections, coup d’états, protests and rebellions; which have been counteracted by the various governments with violent military crack downs are also a major cause.
