Senegal Humanitarian Emergency

UNFPA/Nils Elzenga

Senegal's humanitarian needs are driven mainly by recurring floods during the rainy season and food insecurity, both of which are exacerbated by the effects of climate change. The country also hosts a high number of refugees originating mostly from Mauritania. In instances of displacement, women and girls are more vulnerable to exploitation and violence and are often unable to access life-saving health care. UNFPA works to improve awareness of and access to sexual and reproductive health services and supports mechanisms to prevent and respond to gender-based violence.
