Drought Risk Assessment Using Niger Region Map

Region-Level Map Used to Create Workable Solutions

Government agencies depend on a Niger region map to help them manage risks such as drought in the country. Niger is the largest  country located in Western Africa. It is divided into 7 regions and 1 capital district. Regions are further divided into 36 departments which are further divided into communes. To avoid experiencing a trail of disasters brought by droughts, government department heads and community leaders create drought risk assessments.

Applying mapping tools on a region map of Niger ignites ideas for workable solutions to reduce drought impacts. Heat maps provide instant visibility to “high activity” regions. On the other hand, a coverage tool lets you create a back-up plan. Respond quickly even before something happens.
