The Sahel Alliance was founded on 13 July 2017 and today has fourteen members including France, Germany, the European Union, the World Bank, the African Development Bank, the United Nations Development Programme, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom, Denmark, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, the European Investment Bank and Norway as well as eleven observers including the United States, Canada, Japan, Belgium, Switzerland, Finland, the International Finance Corporation, the Gates Foundation, the Tony Blair Institute, Ireland and the International Organisation of Francophonie.
Each member organisation has the possibility to include in the project portfolio of the Sahel Alliance, development projects meeting the following criteria:
- Implemented in the G5 Sahel countries ;
- Relating to one of the key or cross-cutting sectors of the Sahel Alliance;
- Whose implementation had not been completed by 1 January 2017.
The projects that fall within the portfolio are then labelled "Alliance Sahel".
For greater accountability, a harmonised database of Alliance Sahel labelled projects has been developed. This tool enables a detailed monitoring of projects with a particular focus on disbursements already made as well as on disbursement forecasts. Portfolio data is updated annually to monitor and analyse the evolution of commitment and disbursement rates and to provide greater transparency to the G5 Sahel countries, beneficiaries and members of the Alliance.
Data on all ongoing projects labelled Alliance Sahel as of 31/12/2019 are available on this page.
