  • This present issues has hit locations difficult because they are already vulnerable and have few working techniques.
    The problem is not just relevant to meals availability but the smaller part of the population’s capability to availability any available meals as they have just about used out all their means and working methods.Niger is the most affected country, with 6.4 million people suffering from meals absence risks due to a dreadful gather interval. The more vulnerable locations in Mali, Chad, Senegal and Mauritania are also sensation the effect of the issues.
