    The recent escalation of armed violence in the Niger and increased inter‑community conflict in the border areas with Burkina Faso, Mali and Nigeria have caused an unprecedented humanitarian crisis in the country and higher levels of food insecurity among local populations. There has been a sudden increase in violence in northwestern Nigeria as result of the intensification of violent attacks by armed and organized bandits. In addition, tensions between farmers and herders persist in the region as a consequence of cattle thefts. These conditions have led to the displacement of thousands of people, who have fled to the Niger’s Maradi region, exacerbating existing vulnerabilities. Natural disasters, plant diseases and epidemics are also affecting the population’s food security. Bad to medium harvests are projected for millet and sorghum production in 2019 in certain areas due to poor and erratic distribution of rainfall. In August 2019, the pastoral situation was marked by unfavorable conditions for good forage production, particularly in northern Diffa, centre-west of Tillabéry and Tahoua. According to the latest Cadre Harmonisé analysis (November 2019), if adequate assistance is not provided, over 1.9 million people will be severely food insecure next year (June–August 2020). Providing livelihood support to vulnerable pastoral and agropastoral households is crucial to strengthen their resilience and prevent the worsening of this unprecedented crisis.

    Prices have continued to show an upward trend since December 2010 and remained at very high levels in the subsequent months of 2011. Nominal local rice price may soon approach the level observed in 2008. Food security situation is particularly worrisome for poor and very poor households in regions hit by weather shocks in 2010. An estimated 3 million people require food aid during the current lean season. The socio-political situation has been uncertain in recent months which, coupled with high food prices and the cholera epidemic, has adversely affected the food security conditions. Food and cash for work programmes are implemented with the help of international agencies.
