Niger

Water for crops and livestock

Apart from some larger irrigation perimeters (Niger river, Galmi, etc.), irrigation water is still largely transported by hand. During the dry season water is extracted from the Kori (temporary waterways) in many places. Irrigation plants relieve women of hours of water hauling, and watering troughs help shepherds to provide for their animals. In the Niger, Aqua Alimenta works directly with municipal authorities and SWISSAID.
