Niger Secondary Data Review released, Joint Needs Assessment planned
Published on 15 November 2011
ACAPS, in collaboration with ECB Agencies, have released the Secondary Data Review for Niger.
This report coincides with the harvest season in Niger, which should be the most food secure time for the country with high levels of food availability nationwide.
However, early predictions indicate that close to three million people are at risk of food insecurity due to production shortfalls in 2011/2012, predominantly in the two regions of Tillabery and Tahoua. Niamey, the capital, is based in Tillabery and it is here that there are particular concerns about the urban poor.
All six ECB agencies in Niger will be involved in a Joint Needs Assesment (JNA) which will also include government staff and UN agencies.
The Assessment Capacities Project (ACAPS), with support from ECB agencies and other stakeholders, under the overall coordination of the Humanitarian Country Task Team (HCTT), is in the process of organizing a joint needs assessment (JNA) in Bangladesh. The JNA will take place in the three affected districts of Patuakhali, Barguna and Bhola, following the impact of cyclone Mahasen. Read more
