Avec ses partenaires belges et internationaux, Enabel fournit des solutions pour relever des défis mondiaux urgents : le changement climatique, l’urbanisation, la mobilité humaine, la paix et la sécurité, les inégalités sociales et économiques, et la citoyenneté mondiale. Avec 1500 collaborateurs et collaboratrices, Enabel gère quelque 150 projets dans une vingtaine de pays, en Belgique, en Afrique et au Moyen-Orient.

Contexte
La coopération belge est active depuis 50 ans au Niger pour l’amélioration des conditions de vie de la population à travers des partenariats avec les institutions publiques nigériennes et la société civile. Avec un bureau central basé à Niamey, elle se concentre dans les régions de Tillabéri, Tahoua et Dosso.

Le nouveau programme de coopération bilatérale entre le Niger et la Belgique (2022-2026) se décline en deux objectifs généraux portant sur l’accès inclusif à des services sociaux de base de haute qualité dans le domaine de l’enseignement et des soins de santé, en incluant la santé et les droits sexuels et reproductifs et l’appui au développement durable des chaînes de valeurs dans l’agriculture et l’élevage, l’entreprenariat et la création d’emploi pour les jeunes.

La capitalisation de l’approche intégrée sera formalisée au niveau local et ensuite intégrée dans les mécanismes de recherche/action et d’appui au niveau institutionnel.
