Where we work
Our annual report
Why Niger? Niger is one of the poorest countries in the world, with 9.5 million individuals affected by extreme poverty. The situation has been exacerbated by a significant influx of refugees, as well as numbers of displaced people within the country's borders. Concern implements both humanitarian and development programmes in order to provide basic needs and, at the same time, improve the resilience of local communities.
Niger is facing many challenges
Niger experienced a significant food crisis in 2022 due climate-related events in 2021, including droughts, irregular rainfall and pest attacks.
As the country is highly dependent on agriculture, even minor climate shocks directly affects the livelihood of thousands of households. The country has registered 39% decrease in production for cereals in comparison to the average last five years and as a consequence, the lean season started much earlier than usual in 2022.
Niger continues to face the same major challenges including epidemics, malaria, climatic hazards and people displacement due to insecurity.
More than 35,000 children were able to undergo health check-ups by the end of March 2022 via community active screening sessions, which were organised as part of the Project to Support Food Fortification in Niger.
