Since most of the area has a tropical desert climate, it is dry and rainless all year round. Coupled with unstable power supply, it is very difficult to develop agriculture and animal husbandry even in limited irrigable areas. Therefore, local farmers and herdsmen are often threatened by lack of water for irrigation and food shortages. In order to achieve food security and sustainable agricultural development in the region, the Niger government actively promotes and supports the development of solar water-saving irrigation projects in the region.
