Weekly Introduction:
Comments on the Current Niger Weather Conditions:

2005 seasonal rainfall throughout much of Niger has been greater than normal, leading to very good agricultural conditions in most of the region. As a result Niger is not carried as a weather hazard. The current food security crisis in Niger is the result of various factors including an early end to the rainy season and locust infestations last year as well as high cereal prices this year. For more information on the crisis see FEWS NET's reporting on crisis in Niger at www.fews.net/niger
