Niger is an arid country dominated by the flat plains of the Sahara Desert which makes up over 80% of its land mass.

Following a turbulent post-colonial interlude, defined by a series of coups and political instability, in the last ten years the country has emerged as a democratic, multi-party State.

Niger remains the world’s poorest country according to the Human Development Index. This extreme poverty rate stems from a range of factors which include: its geographic position, infertile terrain, high fertility rates and poor access to basic services such as education and healthcare. Alongside these challenges the country faces natural disasters and conflicts.

Niger also grapples with hosting significant numbers of refugees fleeing conflicts in Nigeria and Mali as well as internally displaced populations. The country has also become a major transit route for migrants heading to Europe.

Acted has been present in Niger since 2010, and operates in the regions of Tillabéry and Diffa. The organization intervenes notably in the fields of access to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, food security and livelihoods, shelter and non-food items (NFI) and social cohesion.

Our achievements in 2020...

people sensitised to hygiene around COVID-19
households benefited from our shelter and NFI kit distributions
people benefited from our emergency food assistance

In the face of the security, health and climate crises affecting the country, Acted provides emergency response and carries out resilience activities to accompany the recovery of the most severely affected populations in very remote areas. Since 2010, Acted has assisted close to one million beneficiaries in the framework of its various projects. Its continued presence has allowed it to develop a deep understanding of the problems faced by the population and the means to effectively address them. To achieve this, Acted works with communities, local authorities and State technical services, but also with social services such as schools and health centers.

For the first time in Niger, Acted is implementing its Regenerative Earthworks and Vegetation for Dynamic Ecosystems program (REVIVE – the first pillar of Acted’s flagship initiative, THRIVE “Towards Holistic Resilience in Vulnerable Environments”, developed to contribute to the long-term resilience of rural communities). It is a pilot project which is being implemented in the Tillabéri region and may be replicated during the year 2021 in the Diffa region. The areas that benefit from these land regeneration activities are selected in advance with the community.

The project makes it possible to support the region’s agricultural sector while at the same time putting an end to the ongoing desertification of the region’s sandy loamy soils.

The 3 agricultural cooperatives with which Acted collaborates in Ayerou, Abala and Banibangou departments are trained in land regeneration techniques. The techniques chosen are simple, replicable and inexpensive so that the communities can continue to replicate the practices and share the lessons learned with other members of their community, thus ensuring sustainability after the end of the project. Specifically, the community (including the most vulnerable, such as internally displaced persons and refugees) is supported to implement water harvesting and vegetation management. This will enable the cultivation of agricultural land that will be used by families in the beneficiary areas for rain-fed agriculture in the coming rainy seasons. With the increase in cultivable agricultural land, a village will be granted the status of an agricultural village and will be able to be included in the list of villages benefiting from the national program for the free distribution of agricultural cereals.

REVIVE is a flagship integrated program of Acted’s 3Zero strategy (Zero Carbon, Zero Poverty, Zero Exclusion) which aims at supporting agricultural production, generating income in rural areas, improving community cohesion and enhancing biodiversity.
