Niger faced a number of persistent challenges : Food insecurity rooted in structural poverty, insufficient incomes, and low production resulted in a need for continued humanitarian assistance for people in the agriculture sector. As a consequence of the ongoing civil unrest in neighboring Mali and Nigeria, large numbers of people fled to Niger and the host communities struggled to respond to the refugee influx. The extreme vulnerability of the refugees as well as the strain on host communities required humanitarian assistance during the past year. The humanitarian response in Niger took into account both acute and chronic emergency needs.
