Niger - Multi-sector Demographic Project : restructuring (Vol. 2) : Data sheet (English)

The development objective of the Multi-sector Demographic Project is to build a national response to address the demographic challenge of Niger, enable the Government to design a nation-wide multi-sector population program, and increase general awareness on population and reproductive health issues. The project was restructured on May 12, 2011, so as to address the demand-creation-dimension of Reproductive Health (RH) in addition to strengthening the supply-side dimension of RH services. This is the second restructuring and no changes are being made to the development objectives, outcomes, design, or scope of the project. The reallocation is necessary because of following reasons: 1) the need to increase the allocation is due to the production of communication toolkits and the increase in the awareness activities by Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) which will use the new kits developed and produced by the project; 2) saving was achieved through the competitive bidding process for training materiel procured by the project; and 3) The contracted NGOs launching the awareness campaigns in villages to promote the implementation of Information, Education, and Communication (IEC)/ Behavior Change Communication (BCC) activities in the field. In short, this explains the transfer of additional funds to this category.
