This document offers an overall assessment of the Lagos Plan of Action, problems encountered in its implementation, the social and economic situation as it exists now before giving a sectoral assessment, chapter by chapter, of the extent to which the Plan has actually been executed. This is followed by proposals on practical measures that could assist in accelerating the application of the Plan as a background and framework for the measures proposed in the remaining parts of this document. Furthermore, it reviews the survival measures required in various emergency areas, especially the food sector, in order not only to meet the needs of the population severely affected by drought and famine, but also to strengthen the preparedness of our countries to cope with future emergency situations, given the persistent drought in many parts of the continent and its periodic nature.
