List of main activities undertaken by the European Union in relation to Niger.

“The EU cooperates with Niger in a wide range of areas, from security and the fight against terrorism, to investment in youth and food security. The EU is Niger’s main development partner and important political interlocutor, including in the G5 Sahel format. Niger is an important partner of the European Union in tackling irregular migration, since it is a key country of transit for migrants from sub-Saharan Africa to the Mediterranean. It cooperates constructively with the EU and its Member States in this regard. Cooperation has been reinforced through the Partnership Framework, with Niger being a priority country. Work is focused on setting up comprehensive action plans taking into account all relevant dimensions of migration. Niger is also an important interlocutor concerning cooperation regarding the southern borders of Libya and plays an important role in the follow up of the Joint Communication on the Central Mediterranean route.”
