Niger : Appel global Revue à mi-parcours 2013

1.Resume

L’environnement social, économique et politique du Niger est resté stable au cours des six premiers mois de l’année 2013. Par contre, les conditions sécuritaires se sont graduellement dégradées avec deux attentats terroristes perpétrés durant le mois de mai contre une garnison militaire et des intérêts français dans le nord du pays (Agadez et Arlit), ainsi que l’évasion, en juin 2013, d’une vingtaine de détenus de la prison civile de Niamey, dont un présumé terroriste très dangereux.

Sahel Regional Strategy 2013

  1. SUMMARY

The 2013 Sahel Strategy aims to respond to the ‘triple crisis’ currently affecting the Sahel: i) the continued humanitarian impact of acute crisis of 2012 due to factors such as drought in 2011, high food prices and low agriculture production; ii) the underlying chronic nature of food insecurity, malnutrition and the erosion of resilience in the region; and iii) the current Mali crisis, which has resulted in the significant displacement of IDPs within the country and an on-going exodus of refugees to neighbouring countries.

UNICEF Niger Monthly Situation Report - 25 June 2012

Highlights

  • With the beginning of the rainy season, a new threat has appeared: on 20 June, the government of Niger appealed for international support to fight the early stages of an invasion of desert locusts in northern Niger. If not treated immediately, this plague will put the forthcoming harvest season (September-November) at high risk. The locusts are coming from outbreak areas along both sides of the Algeria/Libya border where infestations were triggered by desert rainfalls, and control operations were hampered by armed conflicts and insecurity.
