Key messages

  • Humanitarian needs in Niger continue to be immense as a result of lasting food insecurity, high global malnutrition of children under age five and the displacement of people fleeing the conflicts in neighbouring Mali* and Nigeria*. Successive food crises, extreme poverty, displacement and rapid population growth continue to erode people’s resilience. Even in good agricultural years, between 4 and 5 million Nigeriens experience food shortages.

BAMAKO – Grâce à une étroite collaboration entre l’Union Européenne (UE) et les Gouvernements du Royaume-Uni et du Mali, le Programme Alimentaire Mondial des Nations Unies (PAM) a été en mesure de secourir plus d’un quart de million de Maliens en 2016.

Les cinq millions d’euros fournis par l’UE et le Gouvernement britannique, à travers l’Office d’aide humanitaire de la Commission Européenne (ECHO), ont ainsi permis de sauver des vies au nord et au centre du pays.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Mali has one of the highest rates of acute malnutrition in West Africa.

  • With 40 million hectares of arable land, the largest irrigation capacity in the Sahelian region (560,000 hectares), and 300 days of sunshine a year, Mali should leverage the agricultural sector to roll back malnutrition and poverty.

  • New agricultural development policies would prepare the country for the foreseeable impacts of climate change on livestock and crop productivity.
