A Focus on Farmers

Wsyhoqgtktfclb4zpx57

Though one of the quickest growing nations in the world, Niger ranked last on the UNDP’s 2015 Human Development Index. In 2017, more than 1.5 million people are affected by food insecurity and millions more experience food shortages during the lean season. In periods of poor rainfall, nearly 1 in 3 people cannot meet their food needs.

World Food Programme has implemented a program to assist local farmers. WFP uses their purchasing power to buy from smallholder farmers effectively linking agricultural recovery programmes with their own food and nutritional assistance initiatives. This allows smallholder farmers to connect with institutional markets. Additionally, WFP is supporting a progressive transfer of knowledge and capacity to national counterparts, combining technical assistance and other capacity building and policy support.

Vote A Focus on Farmers to help create a sustainable future for farmers in Niger.
