Présentation
Lutheran World Relief and partner Union Hadin Kai worked to ensure that the most vulnerable populations in Niger were more resilient to current and future food crises. Resilience Plus : A Climate-Focused Response to the Food Crisis in Niger sought to provide immediate income for households affected by Niger’s food crisis through cash-for-work, the provision of high-quality, certified millet seed for the 2012 planting season, and the promotion of resiliency to future crises through improved soil and water conservation and nutrition.
