ABSTRACT
In the early 1970s, the famine in Sahelian Africa gave rise to numerous studies about hunger and malnutrition in Sahel, while these realities were still largely undereported by institutions. This sudden production of knowledge reinforced the effects of the crisis, but also gave new evidences on the existence of a chronic food problem.
