Mar 2020

In 2019, the Niger faced increased insecurity, particularly in the Diffa region and areas along the border with Burkina Faso and Mali, mainly Tahoua and Tillabery, which add to the country’s structural vulnerabilities. This has severely affected agricultural production, increasing the levels of food insecurity among conflict-affected communities. In 2020, FAO plans to implment a series of activities aiming to provide emergency assistance to vulnerable, food-insecure farming households to restore their livelihoods.
