In the coming decades, Niger will face extreme weather events, such as sudden and torrential rainfalls, droughts, heat waves, and strong winds, which often carry dust bearing epidemic diseases. Since 2015, UN CC:Learn has been with working with the government of Niger and other stakeholders to meet the government’s ambition of developing a national climate change learning strategy.

Building and Implementing a National Climate Change Learning Strategy

Niger has developed its National Climate Change Learning Strategy through a process that engaged a wide range of stakeholders. The strategy was validated in August 2016 during a workshop that brought together around 30 representatives from multiple ministries, civil society, the academia and international cooperation agencies.

As a first step towards this strategy, a background report was developed.
