National response plan of Niger, 2020 budget breakdown

Published : November 2020

The CH national analysis had identified almost 2 million people as being in need of assistance (June-August 2020). The initial response plan had a budget of 186 billion CFA francs (20% more than that of the 2019 support plan). That plan was revised in April to take account of the various factors that were making food and nutrition insecurity worse, notably those related to the health crisis. According to new estimates, some 2.7 million people would now be needing food and nutrition assistance during the lean season, of whom about 240 000 were urban dwellers; close on 2.9 million people were suffering from the economic effects of the pandemic (including nearly 1 million urban dwellers). Building on a concerted and inclusive process, the Niger Government drew up a revised support plan with a more consistent budget of 343 billion CFA francs. The support plan was implemented by the National Mechanism for the Prevention and Management of Food Crises (DNPGCA), through the Food Crisis Unit and Social Safety Nets Unit and through measures funded and implemented directly by operational partners.
