Living in Niger
Niger is situated in Western Africa and gets its name from the Niger River which runs through it. It has seven land borders with Libya, Chad, Nigeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Mali and Algeria. It is the largest country in West Africa with an area of 1.27 million square kilometres, with over 80% of its land lying in the Sahara Desert. Much of its climate is therefore hot and dry and its wildlife consists of antelopes, gazelles and sheep, with some of the rare species protected by one of the world’s largest reserves, the Aïr and Ténéré National Nature Reserve. The climate is just one of the factors making Niger’s economy weak; drought, desertification, population growth and a lack of demand for its uranium reserves have undercut the economy. 88% of the population rely on agriculture to survive, with a largely subsistence method of farming, yet only 15% of the land is arable, so there is a huge focus in the Southern border with Nigeria. This puts pressure on the land, and with a lack of rainfall there is quite a reliance on food aid and grain purchases. Niger’s culture is a variation coming from the pre-colonial era when four distinct groups occupied different regions of the country. Most notable are the traditional houses in the large city of Zinder, which are formed of mudbricks and are distinctly patterned, particularly in the old town.
