Agricultural Risk Assessment Study in Niger


Majority of Nigeriens live in the Sahelian zone where rainfall is very variable from year to year. The economy is also poorly diversified; marked by the predominance of the agricultural sector, highly dependent on rain-fed schemes and confronted with several food crises and diversity of risks.


In 2016, PARM finalized a Risk Assessment Study (RAS) for Niger. The report presents a comprehensive mapping and assessment of agricultural risks identified in Niger through a holistic approach. It also provides data and information on priority risks and impacts as well as the existing policies and tools to improve agricultural risk management (ARM) in the country.

Conducted by:
Jérôme Coste, Abdoulkader Affane and Olivier Jenn-Treyer
In collaboration with:

Haut Commissariat à l’Initiative 3N
