About our work


UN Women has been present in Niger for more than 10 years; UN Women supports the government’s efforts at strategic and operational levels to design policies, programmes and services needed to ensure the standards of promoting women’s and girl’s wrights are effectively implemented. The UN Women Niger office developed its second Strategic Note (SN) covering a period of four (4) years (2018-2021) and focuses on four (4) axes.

During 2021, the SN, trough the AWP has been successfully implemented in a socio-political context marked by the covid – 19 pandemics, a volatile security situation and a power transition between two elected presidents for the first ever in the country. Structural gender inequalities have been then exacerbated by this conjunctural health and security issues.  The health pandemic situation has for instance been an opportunity to experience innovative and new strategies like the combination of food and cash transfer to advocacy and policy dialogue around social protection for women mostly affected by the crisis, as a result the government is currently working on the establishment a dedicated fund for women.
