Since 2010, Save the Children is implementing in the Sahel region and in collaboration with Oxfam, Action against Hunger, the World Food Program, a project on the Household Economy Analysis (commonly called Household Economy Analysis, HEA). Through capacity building in the 7 countries of coverage (Burkina Faso, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Mali, Senegal, Chad), the Sahel project aims to provide HEA quality information to national and regional Early Warning Systems as well as to others stakeholders involved in food security, social protection or livelihoods.

The reliability of the HEA analyzes was built thanks to a strong commitment of the implementing partners to build technical capacity in countries and through rigorous and quality analyzes.

In addition to the Cadre Harmonise Framework conducted in the West and Central Africa region twice a year, the HEA analyzes inform the government’s plans for the most vulnerable populations as well as the response plans of the humanitarian actors.

In addition to regular presentations of results at national and regional level in the food security and nutrition working groups, summaries of the analysis are published in the joint bulletin FAO / WFP. Detailed HEA Baselines and Outcome Analysis reports are also published on a website dedicated to the HEA in the Sahel (

Information from the HEA baselines is also presented in an Atlas that seeks to identify the geographical features of the HEA information across the Sahel around several key themes like the livestock ownership of the different HEA wealth groups, dependence of the different households to markets or the main risks associated to agriculture or livestock.

A preliminary atlas was developed in 2013 updated in 2014 with 67 rural baselines. This document that was presented to the policy makers in the 7 countries of the project was also made available on the HEA Sahel website:
