Description[edit | edit source]

Niger is a country in the Sahel region of West Africa, named after the Niger river. It achieved independence from France in 1960. Since then it has been ruled intermittently by civil and military governments. One of the poorest countries in the world, Niger ranks rock bottom in international rankings such as the Human Development Index. Niger has both the highest fertility rate and infant mortality rate in the world. Niger should not be confused with Nigeria.
