Project Description

The objective of the Niger Refugees and Host Communities Support Project is to improve access to basic services and economic opportunities for refuges and host communities in select areas in the Republic of Niger. There are four components to the project, the first component being community infrastructure for improved access to basic public services. This component will finance labor intensive, small scale infrastructure rehabilitation and construction provided, through the contracting of local private sector construction firms and temporary employment opportunities for beneficiaries. The second component is the support to economic opportunities. The objective of the component is to improve access to economic opportunities for forcibly displaced and host communities in selected project areas. The third component is the coordination and institutional development. The component will finance capacity building of local and regional authorities (municipal councils, regional councils and the decentralized technical services) and central government authorities to strengthen their ability to manage current and future crises as well as engage in recovery planning.
