The President of Niger continued, “The combination of these two phenomena - population growth and climate change- and the regional disorder following the fall of the regime of Colonel Gaddafi in 2011 have created the chaos that our countries are experiencing today.”

He concluded, “This is why, United Nations and International community, being moved and talking about terrorist violence is not enough. We must act by investing the necessary resources in education to fight against today’s violence and prevent tomorrow’s.”
