Niger: Internal fragilities & regional threats

Niger is now facing three threats. In the west, Niger faces the risk of destabilisation coming from northern Mali; in the south, the influence of Boko Haram is growing, and in the north-east, the risks related to the war in Libya represents a serious cause for concern. A part of the population believes that their legitimate social requests – including those related to food security and resilience – are being relegated to the back burner because of security concerns.
