POPULATION D'AFRIQUE 10 : SWEDD, the project to empower women and harness the demographic dividend in the Sahel, was launched in November 2015. It covers Benin, Burkina Faso, Chad, Ivory Coast, Mali, Mauritania, and Niger. In Côte d'Ivoire, thanks to Christian and Muslim religious leaders, as well as several initiatives such as Safe Spaces, the Husbands' clubs and Future Husbands' Clubs, conclusive results have been obtained and a second phase of the project is already under study.
