Emergency support for the protection of the livelihoods of pastoralists and agropastoralists in the Niger | Project profile
Mar 2020

The outcome of the pastoral campaign in the Niger was limited, mainly due to insecurity, which is disrupting the mobility of herds in certain regions − Diffa, Maradi, Tahoua and Tillabéry. This is threatening the livelihoods of pastoralists, especially of those most vulnerable. Limited access to and availability of fodder for livestock are putting pastoral and agropastoral livelihoods at risk. Mobility restrictions for both people and goods as a result of armed group activities, and the subsequent security measures taken by authorities, contribute to limiting access to markets for pastoralists to sell their livestock or animal products (milk and cheese) as well as to resources such fodder and water to for their livestock. In 2020, FAO plans to implement a series of activities aiming at assisting pastoral households who are vulnerable to the fodder deficit and insecurity.
