The World Bank approved the $80 million Niger Refugees and Host Communities Support Project (PARCA), which will improve access to basic services and economic opportunities for refugees and host communities in 15 communes in the Diffa, Tahoua and Tillabéri regions, and provide institutional support to local,

regional and central government entities in those 3 regions, as well as the Agadez region.

“As several crises unfold in the Sahel region, Niger has been a safe haven for a significant influx of refugees. This is putting significant pressure on local communities and authorities who have hosted refugees, internally displaced and returnees. The newly available IDA resources are critical to provide essential services and economic opportunities to forcibly displaced populations and their host communities in these already poor areas of the country,” said Soukeyna Kane, World Bank Country Director for Niger.

Niger is currently hosting over 280,000 people displaced by conflict representing approximately 158,000 refugees, 109,000 Internally Displaced People (IDPs) and 16,000 Nigerien nationals who returned from Nigeria because of Boko Haram. PARCA will provide income support for select households and communities affected by the crisis and benefit refugees, IDPs and host communities, with a total population of over 500,000.

Niger benefits from special financing mechanisms provided by the International Development Association (IDA)*: $2 billion of dedicated fundingto support low-income countries hosting large numbers of refugees (refugee windows) as well as additional funding to address risk factors of fragility and violence. This represents an unprecedented opportunity to upgrade and expand the scope of the World Bank Group’s assistance to achieve its twin goals of eliminating poverty and fostering shared prosperity in a socially and environmentally sustainable way.

PARCA is one of more than 500 projects implemented under the Sahel Alliance, an initiative of partner countries and development organizations formed in July 2017. The Alliance aims to support the development efforts of the G5 Sahel countries by promoting an integrated approach to security and development, based on aid effectiveness, fast results delivery and systematic impact measurement.
