Niger

PROJECT TITLE : From Emergency Relief to Community Resilience (Niger)

Pays : Niger

PROJECT PERIOD  : May 1, 2012 – April 30, 2013

Contexte
Key project approaches included : • Cash-for-Work • Soil & Water Conservation • Emergency Seed Provision • Hygiene & Nutritional Health Behavior Change

Description
* Cash-for-Work (CFW) activities were designed to restore community assets and promote natural resource conservation and protection, contributing to improved food security by meeting immediate food needs and enhancing long-term protection of land assets vital to sustained resilience.
* The project used certified millet seed (R1 HKP) recognized for early maturation, Striga resistance and high expected yields. In addition, it retains its qualities for up to four plantings. The project’s distribution of this seed promotes sustained benefits to farming households. This contributed to an additional 3 months of food self-sufficiency.
* Raising awareness hygiene and nutrition education in project activities through integrated health messaging at a community level facilitates delivery and understanding of awareness-raising sessions. This contributed to average change in nutrition knowledge by 78% from the baseline.
