UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.


For every child, hope :

According to the humanitarian response plan around 2.9 million people will need humanitarian assistance in Niger in 2020 people including 51% women and 55% children. Niger is in a situation of extreme vulnerability following a multitude of shocks linked to climate change, population growth and radicalization, contributing in fact to persistent poverty and recurring humanitarian crises. These crises have a significant impact on the vulnerability of populations, which are often affected simultaneously by multiple crises. Like other countries in the Sahel region, Niger continues to be affected by chronic food insecurity and malnutrition. Seasonal epidemics, drought, floods and the consequences of cross-border violence caused by non-state armed groups are also significant threats. The consequences are dramatic for the affected population, endangering the lives and livelihoods of civilians, increasing the need for protection and endangering social cohesion. Insecurity generated by attacks by Non-State Armed Groups (GANEs) in border regions also severely disrupts people’s access to basic social services and livelihoods. The above-mentioned shocks arise from a worrying and multifaceted humanitarian situation. In Diffa, Tillaberi, Tahoua and recently in Maradi, this deteriorated considerably in 2019 and early 2020 following the growing activism of the GANEs accompanied by looting, kidnappings, targeted assassinations, threats and various intimidation. Besides the activism of the GANEs, inter-ethnic violence, criminal acts of opportunity as well as security operations carried out by Nigerien military forces often provoke massive movements of populations. Across the country, approximately 400,000 people (109,404 displaced persons and 119,541 Nigerian refugees in Diffa, 78,040 displaced persons and 56,815 Malian refugees in Tillaberi / Tahoua and nearly 35,000 Nigerian refugees in Maradi) have been forced to flee their homes and are currently living in very precarious conditions. In 2019 and early 2020, humanitarian organizations in Niger were faced with increasing access constraints in all operations, affecting their ability to respond to the needs of the population. These constraints are linked not only to the low level of funding, but also to the security environment, measures specific to the state of emergency in force in certain regions, the state of the roads and the imposition of armed escorts for humanitarian actors wishing to take certain routes in order to provide assistance to the populations.

UNICEF provides multi-sectoral responses to the crises affecting Niger and aims at strengthening its emergency response capacity and efficiency, but also the link between humanitarian interventions and resilience-building programs.

UNICEF leads 3 sectors/clusters and 1 sub-cluster in the country at the national level, and supports the government in the regions, including Diffa, Tahoua and Tillabery, in their leadership role for humanitarian sectoral coordination.

In 2016 UNICEF initiated a partnership with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) for the implementation of a Rapid Response Mechanism (RRM) in the country, in coordination with OCHA and government coordination structures. The mechanism provides rapid multisectoral assessment and response in WASH, NFI, food security and protection, to the acute vulnerabilities of people recently affected by population movements due to sudden chocs, mainly conflict, but also floods if requested by the humanitarian coordination. The operational collaboration was extended in 2017 to other NOGs (ACTED, DRC, ACF), reunited under an RRM consortium. In 2018 the RRM mechanism was formalized through a joint framework, which included OCHA, UNICEF, WFP, the Ministry of Humanitarian Action and Disaster Relief, and the NGO (ACF, ACTED, DRC and IRC) and which was mainly funded by ECHO. In 2020, some NGO (ACF, ALIMA, COOPI, HELP, PUI) will start to respond to health and nutrition needs through the RRM system. Since 2019, according to the revised RRM joint framework, UNICEF is responsible for the technical leadership of the mechanism, including the Information Management in coordination with the Inter-cluster Information Management Working Groups, for the centralization of NFI and WASH procurement, and also for the technical and operational coordination of the mechanism through this RRM coordinator position. The technical leadership includes the supervision and monitoring of the quality of the interventions, the respect of international and RRM standards, the revision of tools, training of partners, communication with clusters and working groups, leadership for the organization and facilitation of technical workshops, mission monitoring and innovative and strategic advice.


How can you make a difference?
