Humanitarian food assistance/WFP

Description

Humanitarian food assistance through WFP to Niger, a total support EUR 1 million. The Sahel region, incl. Niger, is suffering from the effects of climate change on agriculture and the region has over the past decade experienced recurrent food and nutrition crises. The wide-ranging needs for food assistance will continue in Niger in 2013. About 2.8 million men, women and children lives in food insecure areas, which is an estimated 10 per cent rise since last November, despite last year's good harvest season. WFP is targetting a total of 1.8 million people in Niger. WFP's Niger operations include food distribution, cash and voucher assistance, food for assets programs aimed at providing skills for improved household and community food security, and targeted nutrition programs, as well as special operations for humanitarian logistics. WFP's Niger operations will still need 105 million U.S. dollars for the end of the year.
