Dutch government increases development assistance for Niger
The Netherlands will increase its development spending in Niger with an additional €100 million over four years. The funding will focus primarily on programs that fight poverty, and provide education as well as job opportunities for young people. The increased support aligns with the broader development efforts of the Netherlands in the Sahel region, which emphasizes conflict prevention, security and stability.
The Dutch government also supports projects for safe and clean water, and initiatives that help young entrepreneurs kick start their businesses.
