Sahel: A New Leaf

A documentary about the food crisis in the Sahel
and Development and Peace's response

In the summer of 2012, the Sahel region of West Africa faced a food crisis that put 18 million people at risk of hunger and food shortages. At the height of the crisis, Development and Peace travelled to Niger, one of the most affected countries, with a film crew from Salt and Light Television, to chronicle the impact on communities. The result is A New Leaf, a 30-minute documentary that delves into the complex issues that led to the crisis and how our solidarity can make a difference.

At the end of February 2013, we premiered the film in Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Victoria and it subsequently aired on Salt+Light TV. Hear what people across the country had to say about A New Leaf.

We would like to invite you to take the journey to Niger through A New Leaf with your community. We have prepared a Screening and Discussion Guide to help you organize a screening of the documentary in your community to raise awareness on the realities of food insecurity in this region of the world. We have also prepared a poster template that you can use to promote your event.
