Fortified food - persuading the private sector to do good

Report
IRIN

LONDON, 18 April 2014 (IRIN) - With a certain amount of fanfare, Nigeria has just officially become a middle income country. It is not the sort of country associated with widespread hunger, or a country where people normally get, or expect to get, food aid. And yet around a quarter of small children in Nigeria are underweight, and around 40 percent are stunted; they do not get enough nutritious food to reach their full physical and mental potential.

Mediation measures in West Africa

Report
Peace Direct

April 3 2014: Halima Nuhu outlines some of the organisations working at different political levels to mediate conflicts in West Africa.

The importance of mediation as a peacebuilding tool in any society today cannot be overemphasised. Since gaining independence in the 1960s, Nigeria has played a major role in peace advocacy and conflict resolution and has sought to manage its inter-state relations under the framework of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and other bilateral arrangements with its immediate neighbours.

Les Comités d’Action Communautaire : des acteurs essentiels dans l’aide aux réfugiés

Bako a son téléphone qui sonne. Une fois de plus, un appel de la commune de Maïné-Soroa pour l'informer de l'arrivée d'une nouvelle famille ayant fui le Nigeria. Le téléphone de Bako sonne souvent. De son vrai nom Abderrahmane Ahmed, Bako est le secrétaire général du Comité d’Action Communautaire (CAC) de la commune de Maïné-Soroa, dans la région de Diffa. Au Niger, les groupements communautaires sont anciens, ils ont été institutionnalisés sous le Président Seyni Kountche (1974 – 1983). Les CAC en sont une nouvelle forme mise en place par Issoufou Mahamadou, l’actuel Président du pays.
