  • Niger should improve on the budget-lines to respond to spending needs on resilience building initiatives, and increase the area of land under irrigation.
  • The country should invest in nutrition interventions to reduce malnutrition among children under 5 years old, and more specifically the prevalence of stunting and the prevalence of underweight.
  • Niger should also strengthen its capacity to collect data on Malabo indicators including data on access to finance, access to agriculture inputs and technologies, post-harvest losses, intra-African trade, and resilience to climate related risks.
