The Belgian Development Cooperation has been active in Niger for more than 50 years. We aim to improve the living conditions of the population in Niger through partnerships with the country’s public institutions.


Good health is a basic condition for economic participation and contribution to the country’s development. We support Niger in facing the challenge of delivering accessible quality health care to its entire population.

We do so by supporting all chains of the health system. On one hand, we assist the Ministry of Public Health in defining and ensuring the implementation of its health policies and in coordinating the health sector.

On the other hand we test, in the pilot health districts of Gotheye and Gaya, the implementation of fundamental reforms in the sector such as the performance-based financing of the healthcare centres, the quality assurance of their services and the digitalisation of the management of healthcare services.

Stock breeding and food security

Stock breeding is a dynamic sector in Niger’s economy which generates growth. We support this sector in view of improving food security and boosting the incomes of the breeders who depend on it.

Making the stock breeding sector more resilient, better performing and sustainable is a challenge that we address with our actions targeting stock breeding products, added value creation and marketing and with our interventions to better manage and protect the natural resources that are essential for stock breeding.

In order to advance the development of stock breeding on the long run, these actions are accompanied by capacity development of the different actors involved in stock breeding (public and private operators as well as civil society) so they can fully take on their respective roles.
