Office du Niger – Integration of marginal land users


    The developmental objective (at impact level) of both projects was to improve the living conditions in the project regions and to improve the security of the national food supply. The projects' goal at outcome level was to make the most of the agricultural potential in irrigation for a sustainable, self-sufficient agricultural sector and to increase the population’s income. By expanding the irrigation infrastructure in the Office du Niger’s (OdN) irrigation system, new areas of land were developed and areas previously irrigated informally were formalised. The smallholder users were advised on issues such as farming techniques, marketing and processing, as well as water management and the organisation of water user groups.
