Objective:

To improve food and nutritional security of vulnerable populations affected by the 2012 cereal deficit in the Niger.

Key partners:

Dispositif national de prévention et de gestion des catastrophes et crises alimentaires (DNPGCCA), Subregional committee for the prevention and management of disasters and food crises (Comités sous régionaux de prévention et de gestion des catastrophes et crises alimentaires), the Ministry of Agriculture and the local and international implementing partners.

Beneficiaries reached:

70 000 households.

Activities implemented:
  • Identified households with lack of quality seeds for the 2013 agricultural production and in a difficult food and nutritional situation in the regions of Diffa, Tahoua, Tillabéry and Zinder.
  • Enhanced women participation in the seed distribution.
  • Identified implementing partners and developed Memoranda of Understanding.
  • Selected 70 000 beneficiary vulnerable households, particularly woman-headed households and with disabled people.
  • Provided 700 tonnes of millet HKP seeds.
  • Assessed crops and measured impact on the improvement of food availability amongst beneficiaries.
Impact:

The project allowed the access of 70 000 food insecure households to quality millet seeds and improved their resilience. The support provided (seeds and technical training) allowed the cultivation of 70 000 ha and the production of 26 080 tonnes of millet, which contributed to meet the food needs of about 490 000 direct beneficiaries (455 700 men and 34 300 women).
