PIDACC Niger

As part of the implementation of the Program Integrated for Development and Adaptation to Climate Change in the Niger Basin (IPCCD/NB) Niger Component, the African Development Bank (AfDB) and its partners are financing several activities in the breeding sector, which remains the second main activity of the rural populations and the second source of hard currency for the country after attractive industries.
Despite the considerable role played by this sector in the economy of Niger, its practice encounters enormous difficulties, among which we can cite, among others: the occupation of the pastoral enclaves by agricultural activities, the gradual decline in the nutritional value of the pastures and the frequency of the epizootics. In view of all these constraints, the Nigerien Government adopted in July 2013, a Strategy for the Sustainable Development of the Livestock (SSDLi) 2013-2035, together with its Action Plan for the period of 2013-2015, with the objective of make this sector more productive and competitive. As part of this strategy, the PIDACC/NB Niger Component plans to finance the development of pastoral areas, the rehabilitation of the pastoral infrastructure, the creation of the zootechnical input banks, the creation of vaccination corridors parks, the practice of the crops. fodder, the creation of fodder markets in the Dosso and Tahoua regions. To implement these activities, the NCPU organized a joint mission to clarify the status and the secure pastoral sites in the rural municipalities of the Matankari and Soucoucoutane/Department of Dogon Doutchi/region of Dosso.

This mission saw the participation of the administrative, communal and customary authorities, the representative of the Regional Council, the executives of the technical livestock services and land commissions.

Program Integrated for Development and Adaptation to Climate Change in the Niger Basin (IPCCCD/NB)

In the concretization of its mandate to "Promote the protection and the rational and sustainable exploitation of this natural resource that constitutes the river area", the NBA initiated in 2019, with the financial support of the several partners, including the AfDB, the implementation of a vast "Program Integrated for Development and Adaptation to Climate Change in the Niger Basin (IPCCCD/NB)".

The main challenges facing the Programme relate to: (i) the silting of the Niger River, mainly linked to wind and water erosion from upstream to downstream, from Guinea to Nigeria; (ii) ensuring shared and the rational management of the water resources; (iii) the developing of the resilience of ecosystems, the natural resources and the populations supported by climate change adaptation measures; and (iv) the rehabilitation of the navigation sections in order to strengthen trade between certain Member Country.
The Program is structured around three components : (i) Ecosystem and the natural resource resilience development (ii) Population resilience development; and (iii) Program coordination and management. Gender and environmental protection issues are integrated across all components.
The projected duration of the PIDACC/NB is 6 years. Its total cost, including taxes and customs contingencies, is estimated at CFAF 120 billion financed by the Afdb and its partners. To this is added an amount of 24 Million Euros financed by the German Financial Cooperation for the benefit of Guinea (14 Million) and Mali (10 million) through the KFW.
