The State of Hunger in Niger
Despite being a landlocked country with little arable land for farming, around 80% of people in Niger rely on agriculture and livestock for their livelihoods. Farmers and herders face significant challenges, including frequent droughts and floods, poor soil quality, and lack of access to seeds and fertilizers.
About 60% of Nigeriens live below the poverty line and access to sustainable sources of food is limited. Nearly half of all children in Niger suffer from malnutrition.
