SITUATION OVERVIEW

CONFLICT AND DISPLACEMENT

27 Jul 2018 description

Niger struggles with cyclic and protracted events that devastate the lives of millions of people. Conflict, adverse climate, poverty and underdevelopment cause huge population displacements, drive up hunger and malnutrition, and deprive communities of basic services and opportunities for a better future. This year, 2.3 million people need humanitarian assistance to survive – an increase of 400,000 people compared to 2017. Humanitarian needs have deepened in nearly all the sectors and all of Niger’s eight regions are grappling with humanitarian emergencies at varying scales.
