The Sahel Institut (INSAH) is a specialized institution of the CILSS mandated to coordinate, harmonize and promote scientific and technical research in the Sahelian countries.

During the past several years, INSAH has developed several databases (DB) to facilitate access to information and knowledge and to foster scientific and technical cooperation among actors in the national research systems of the CILSS member countries working in agriculture, livestock, population and development.

Specifically, the data bases include a directory of pesticides with information on their characteristics, use, and legal status in the CILSS countries; a directory of expertise (human resources) and agricultural and natural resource management technologies available in the region; socio-economic profiles of the countries in the sub-region; and publications produced by or of interest to INSAH and its National Agricultural Research Center partners.

This web-site is devoted to the scientific publications and related documents that are of interest to the Sahelian research and development community.
