Niger Selected projects
04/07/2016 - Niger, a country in the heart of the Sahel-Saharan region, is faced with recurrent food crises due to erratic, insufficient rains and other factors. Repeated drought and desert encroachment in recent decades justify the option taken by Niger to retain the mobilization of water resources as a fundamental part of its rural development strategy whose ultimate goal is to ensure the country’s food security.
14/05/2014 - La Banque africaine de développement (BAD) a participé le 20 avril dernier à Alger, en Algérie à une réunion de coordination portant sur la Route Transsaharienne (RTS), un projet qui s’étire d’Alger à Lagos. Son objectif est de desservir toute la sous-région du Maghreb et du Sahel sur une longueur totale de 9.400 km.
27/07/2012 - The Diffa region to the far south-east of Niger is one of the areas most affected by cycles of drought, characterized especially by dune encroachment, increased silting in agricultural and stock breeding areas and a steady deterioration of the natural environment.
28/03/2012 - Aquatic plant proliferation is an environmental scourge. These weeds invade waterways and irrigation channels, impeding their economic operation. Fishermen have suffered rising costs, and farmers have to spend more time cleaning their irrigation canals, resulting in lost production and productivity.
