Niger: Access to Gas Project

Niger: Access to Gas Project

Partnering With the Private Sector to Provide Gas to Vulnerable Refugees and Host Communities

In the Diffa region of Niger, nearly one third of the population is forcibly displaced, including over 100,000 refugees from Nigeria. This population is spread across 100 sites, in an area approximately the size of Belgium.

Thanks to UNHCR's partnership with a private gas company, the residents of this area are now the best served in the Sahel region, in terms of access to affordable cooking gas.
