livestock to help ensure food security through the ‘3N’ initiatives
(‘Les Nigériens Nourrissent les Nigériens’ – Nigeriens feeding
Nigeriens) and also to increase the incomes of the farmers

development of our country.
5. More than six hundred (600) billion FCFA for urban, rural and
pastoral water.Access to water for everyone is a priority.

the benefit of education and six hundred (600) billion FCFA for
health in order to significantly improve the key social factors of a
developing society.
