Sahel by 2030 

The Prospective Study on Sahelian Realities 2030 (PRS 2030), carried out between 2016 and 2017, aims to:

1)  Assess, by 2030, the potential for economic integration and development in eight countries: Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal and Chad. These eight countries form a group called Sahelo-Saharan: five are directly Sahelian; the other three are, for goods in particular, gateways to the Sahel.

2)  Identify the brakes and levers for this integration of the Sahelo-Sahelian space.


The study is multidisciplinary, systemic and prospective. It has benefited from the analyses of anticipatory work, former and on-going projects and sector studies. It also relied on a collection of original field data. Finally, PRS 2030 has mobilized a network of experts and an experienced project team bringing together analysts and development practitioners. 

The project resulted in the production of four contrasting scenarios.
