Issue 439
27 May 2021

Published in May 2021, this map provides an overview of infrastructure and conflict flash points in the Sahel region- covering  Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger and Chad. 

Power generation sites that are under construction operating and planned are shown by type (thermal, hydroelectricity, solar, wind, biomass/biogas) alongside major actual and planned transmission lines.

The location of oil and gas fields and pipelines are also shown.

Annotations outlining conflict areas and flash points are included alongside population and economic statistics for the Sahel countries. 

The map is available as a PDF file using eps graphics, meaning that there is no loss of resolution as the file is enlarged.
