Niger IAP factsheet

The Integrated Approach Programme on food security in Sub-Saharan Africa targets agro-ecological systems where the need to enhance food security is directly linked to opportunities for generating local and global environmental benefits. Being an integral part of the 12 country regional programme, the Family Farming Development project will contribute to the collective impact of this programme, which is intended to inform approaches to food security in the drylands of sub-Saharan Africa towards win-win solutions between food production and maintaining ecosystem services in the face of anticipated climate shocks.

To mitigate these threats and facilitate the sustainable access by local populations to water and land resources available in the watersheds (basins and valleys), the Government of Niger through the IAP program will promote soil and water conservation and soil protection and restoration works (structures) on a large scale (see Fig. 2). The objective is to sustainably increase the incomes of family farms, their adaptation to climate change and their access to local, urban and regional markets.
