3 The USAID/CILSS team also participated in a Regional Consultation workshop on Cereals and Food Balance Sheet ; Ex-post and projected food situation in the Sahel and West Africa from November 20-22, 2013 in Lomé-Togo. The overall objective of this meeting of the regional monitoring (PREGEC) is to validate the projected agricultural production to establish cereal and food balance sheet in the Sahel and West Africa. This meeting was also used to analyze cyclical information on food and nutrition security in the region. Specifically, these were: -An update on the progress of the agro-pastoral season 2013 /2014 ; -Validation of the provisional production of agro-pastoral season 2013 /2014 ; -Establishment of cereal and food balance sheets ex-post forecast and Review of the market situation and food and nutrition security at the end of the lean season -Sharing of the results of operation of the Harmonized Framework (CH) analysis of risk areas and vulnerable populations in 10 of the 17 countries of the CILSS and ECOWAS region. Food for the Market The team again participated in the 29th Annual Meeting of the Food Crisis Prevention Network (RPCA) in the Sahel and West Africa. This meeting was organized in Abidjan, Cote d Ivoire from November 25-29, In the month of November/December each year, the Executive Secretariat of the Permanent Interstate Committee for Drought Control in the Sahel (CILSS) and the Secretariat of the Sahel and West Africa Club (SWAC/OECD) organize the annual meeting of the Food Crisis Prevention Network under the patronage of ECOWAS and the UEMOA. This event offers an occassion to assess the preliminary prospects of the currrent agro-pastorial campaign and to analyze the food and nutritional situation, in order to convene in advance of the necessary measures to take to prevent possible crisis situations. The meeting also provided an opportunity to exchange on the acceleration of the implementation of the Harmonized Framework (HF), the evaluation of the charter for Food Crisis Prevention and Management, as well as the current state of the implementation of the inclusive dialogue process of the Global Alliance for Resilience (AGIR)-Sahel and West Africa member countries.

4 I USAID/CILSS DATA COLLECTION SYSTEM CILSS collects data through intra-regional trade for a more complete and accurate understanding of regional trade of commodities and to promote the West African regional trade in staple food commodities. Data are collected by professional organizations from ATP/EATP countries through national private partner apex associations or regional organizations and data collection activities are supported by grants after grant agreements were signed with CILSS. The data collected include data on ruminant livestock (cattle, sheep and goats), maize, millet, sorghum and parboiled rice. The trade data collectors are positioned at exit points (borders) and in strategic markets in the various countries in the region to collect data on cross-border trade and on staple food commodities. The countries covered include Benin, Burkina Faso, Cote d Ivoire, Ghana, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal and Togo. These data collection activities are done on a daily basis in each country and are supervised by focal points that collate and transmit same to CILSS on a monthly basis.
