Titre : Rural Women Economic Empowerment Niger

Pays : Niger

Dates : 3 Nov 2014 // 30 Jun 2021

Identification : 00092005

The overall goal of the Joint Programme (JP) in Niger is to contribute to securing rural women’s livelihoods and rights in the context of sustainable development and post-MDGs. The Programme supports the efforts of the Government to address the issues that are hampering rural women’s socio-economic empowerment.

Four outcomes are expected : (i) rural women’s food and nutritional security is improved ; (ii) rural women’s income are increased to ensure their livelihoods ; (iii) rural women’s leadership and participation in the communities and rural organisations are improved, as well as in the development of laws, policies and programmes ; (iv) a more gender-responsive enabling policy environment is promoted for rural women’s economic empowerment.

These results will be achieved through a multi-sectorial approach based on strengthening the synergies among the Participating UN Organizations in those geographical areas where there are already on-going field activities.

The JP activities are in line with the development objectives of the Government of Niger, notably the 3N initiative (“Les Nigériens Nourissent les Nigériens”). The Government has introduced its 3N Initiative in 2011 to increase the country’s resilience to food crises and reduce poverty through agricultural reform. A new approach is also being developed, called "communes de convergence", an integrated approach to create synergies among different actors intervening in the same areas to reduce vulnerability and ensure continuity between humanitarian and development interventions. This approach allows for better coordination and strategic planning of the Government as well as both humanitarian and development actors.
