A convergence of crises

Communities in south-east Niger have been battered by floods, food crises and the consequences of conflict in neighboring Nigeria.

The dusty and dry harmattan wind fades as the sun climbs above the community at Adjiri. This small community sits on the outskirts of the town of Diffa in Niger’s far south-east. It is made up of 191 families who were relocated here when the Komadougou River burst its banks in November 2013, reaching almost five metres – a height not seen in almost 40 years.

In all, more than 15,000 people were displaced. At Adjiri, people are living in white tents provided by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) with funding from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF).
