Dispatch and host of the Global Dispatches Podcast, speaks with David Beasley, executive director of the World Food Programme, on “the situation in the Sahel, where food security conditions are rapidly deteriorating because of a combination of lower-than-normal rainfall and insurgent activities. Beasley describes the situation there, and also the link between food security and extremism.
