Niger

Titre : Bolstering Resilient Recovery (Niger)

Région /Pays : Niger

Date : March 2013 – March 2014

Présentation
USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), LWR and Union Hadin Kai bolstered food security and livelihoods recovery in Tahoua, Niger, through revitalization of local assets and boosting agricultural production.

Key project approaches included : • Cash-for-Work • Soil & Water Conservation • Emergency Seed Provision • Training for Improved Agricultural Outcomes

Interventions
• 5,081 men and women participated in Cash-for-Work (CFW) activities, enabling them to meet immediate household needs. In total, 59,513 people benefitted from these CFW payments. • CFW participants recovered 556 hectares of communal land through soil and water conservation interventions ; communities subsequently planted 133,668 mature tree saplings on this recovered land, as well as sowed 431 hectares with grass seed. • 2,000 vulnerable households received a 10 kg ration of certified millet seed, enabling them to plant 1 hectare of millet each. 90 highly motivated recipients of this seed were trained as trainers in improved agricultural production techniques for food crops and have reached over 2,000 producers with their skills and knowledge through community outreach. • 168 community-nominated livestock outreach volunteers (all women) benefitted from training on care and fattening of small ruminants for market to promote optimization of their communities’ animal assets.
