Niger: The Impact of Climate Change on Agriculture

Niger’s agricultural sector has been significantly impacted by climate change. The country, located in the heart of the Sahel, has a poorly diversified economy, with agriculture accounting for 40% of its GDP. The level of extreme poverty is expected to reach 44.1% in 2023, and the country is highly vulnerable to climatic shocks. The impact of climate change has led to a decrease in agricultural productivity, exacerbating food insecurity and poverty.

The country has experienced a decline in average per capita income and the number of people living in extreme poverty has increased to 10.5 million in 2021. The government has been urged to adopt ambitious institutional and economic reforms to place Niger on a more dynamic path and offer better economic opportunities to the entire population, especially women and young people.

We recommend that the adoption of modern technologies should be made cohesive in all sectors—starting with agriculture, to make it more productive and resilient. The government has been advised to focus on pro-productivity and pro-poor policies to achieve economic diversification beyond subsistence agriculture and informal activities.
