The Sahel Regional Office was formed in 2013 to implement the new resilience strategy, and will seek to leverage existing humanitarian and development assistance to reduce risk, build resilience, and facilitate inclusive economic growth among chronically vulnerable households across the Sahel.

Strategic coordination between local and international actors is crucial to the enhanced resilience of the most vulnerable communities across the region, and the Sahel Regional Office is coordinating with regional institutions, national governments, U.N. agencies, NGOs, community based organizations, research institutions, and other partners through its participation in the Global Alliance for Resilience in the Sahel (AGIR-Sahel) partnership.
