Main recommendations for the National Indicative Programme to
- Continue to focus on providing support to social services’ provision. There is an urgent need for more funding in health and education, to raise the quality of services and ensure access for all.
- Keep food security as an urgent priority. Other measures to increase income security for those not in the formal economy should also be considered.
- Support the further development of a financing plan for social protection and the mobilisation of domestic sustainable resources to ensure the success of the National Social Protection Policy adopted in 2011.
- Support the creation of a platform for non-state actors to unite and work together to establish a comprehensive national social protection floor in Niger. The EU should support civil society in opening up a formal dialogue with the Government on the revision, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the National Social Protection Policy.
