Niger programme plan 2012

28 February 2012

This is Concern Worldwide's 2012 programme plan for Niger. The following is an excerpt from the document, which can be downloaded below.

Two thirds of 14.3m population of Niger live below the poverty line, which makes them exceedingly vulnerable when disasters unfold. Women are particularly hit hard as they have less access than men to productive resources such as land, credit, technology and training. 80% of the population lives in rural zones. Chronic food insecurity touches approximately 80% of the population. The extremely high demographic growth (3.6% per annum) poses tremendous challenges to the country. Just to keep pace with its burgeoning population, all sectors of the country need to grow too, as does the capacity of basic services such as health, education and, of course, agriculture. Between 2005 and 2010, the annual food needs have increased by nearly 25 percent, or 800,000 tons.
