Présentation

USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), LWR and Union Hadin Kai partnered to respond to food insecurity in Tahoua, Niger, by revitalizing local assets and boosting agricultural production for a more resilient future. Key project approaches included : • Cash-for-Work • Soil & Water Conservation • Emergency Seed Provision • Hygiene & Nutritional Health Behavior Change

Interventions

• More than 7,300 men and women participated in Cash-for-Work (CFW) activities, enabling them to immediately purchase essential household items and meet their emergency needs. In total, more than 79,000 people benefitted from these CFW payments. • CFW participants recovered 1,214 hectares of communal land through soil and water conservation interventions. • 40 trained nursery tree managers raised 275,125 tree saplings for planting to complement CFW erosion control efforts. • 3,000 vulnerable households received a 5kg emergency ration of certified millet seed, enabling them to plant 0.5 hectares of millet each. • 120 women were trained in hygiene and nutritional health behavior change communication (BCC) techniques and essential family practices. Charged with leading community hygiene and nutritional outreach efforts, these women served as key community leaders in promoting healthy family practices, reaching over 37,000 people.
