Q&A- Sahel - extract from the press briefing (29 Sept. 2023)

A - The suspension of our development assistance does not affect humanitarian projects. Those were on the order of €58 million in 2022 for the three Sahel countries, where we stand by the populations that are being affected by the rapid breakdown of security conditions.
