Body

According to the National Food Crisis Prevention and Management Mechanism, the 2021 agricultural season was marked by pests in crops, delays in planning and above average rainfall in the end of August and September. As a result, the food production was below average bringing the Niger population and risk of food insecurity. Following the results of the harmonised framework of March 2022, more than 3 million people are already facing food insecurity (fase 3). The projections predict a total of 4,402,406 persons to be directly affected.
