🇩🇿 🇳🇬 🇳🇪 🇪🇺 🇨🇳 | On peut supposer que l’#Algérie demandera à la #Chine et à l’#UE de les aider à financer la construction d’un gazoduc.

Thread explicatif🧵
Le gazoduc transsaharien (TSGP), qui permet de transporter jusqu'à 30 milliards de mètres cubes de gaz par an vers l'Union européenne via le #Nigeria, le #Niger et l'#Algérie, est en cause.

Le prix est d'environ 20 milliards de dollars.

➡️ Les Algériens sont très désireux de voir ce projet se concrétiser.

"It is a tragic effect. It is a huge mistake" per the EU Military Staff's LtGen Manione

"We are keeping resources stick to just in case something happens, forgetting completely that actions should be taken now in another theater"
#Ukraine - "I'm not sure this is the main target of the #Russia|ns" per the EU Military Staff's LtGen Manione

"The main target of the Russian could be having ppl focused on there [Ukraine], forgetting they're [Russia's] actions elsewhere"

#Niger: 1/ L’Assemblée nationale débat depuis ce matin 9h sur la modification de la déclaration de politique générale, permettant l’installation de nouvelles forces internationales sur le territoire nigérien. Pour rappel, voici les éléments du texte 👇
2/ Les députés favorables au texte ont mis en avant les immenses défis sécuritaires, et l’importance que le Niger soit appuyé par des partenaires internationaux pour les relever. Certains ont critiqué les manipulations de l'information relatives à la présence de forces étrangères
3/ Les députés défavorables ont critiqué l’absence d’informations sur les accords qui seront signés, dont le contenu n'a pas été présenté. Certains ont avancé que la conclusion de ces accords sans ratification du Parlement est contraire à la Constitution

@oykusenlen @leonickroberts @byfordt
Latest data suggests countries outside 🇨🇳 are considering over 124GW new #coal power projects,much of which was expected to rely on 🇨🇳 public finance. Since Xi’s announcement at #UNGA 2021, the lack of clarity or follow-up has created some confusion
New guidance by #China’s state planner #NDRC has now shed some light on what it would look like for China to ‘stop further construction’ of coal power plants overseas. There are 3 parts to this new guidance 👇

The number of 👥 in need in Burkina Faso, Northern Cameroon,Chad,Mali,Niger, and North-Eastern Nigeria 📈 from 24M in 2018 to over 30M in 2022 due to the combined effect of:
🚨 increasingly violent conflicts
🚨 deep poverty
🚨 climate change
🚨 unprecedented food insecurity Image
@OMSNiger @WHONigeria @OMS_Burkina @whocmr @omsmali @OMS_Afrique @unis_sahel @UN_UNOWAS Only less than half of the 2021 humanitarian appeal for the Sahel was funded.

Despite this, WHO and partners continued to work in the Sahel region to prevent the humanitarian situation from getting worse.

In 2021 despite security and funding challenges WHO helped over 300,000 people in #BurkinaFaso🇧🇫 with

✅ emergency supplies to treat cholera
#COVID19 trauma, and severe acute malnutrition treatment
✅ medicines to manage chronic conditions

1/3 The demand was one for those who demonstrated against the passage of the #French military convoy in #BurkinaFaso, #Niger and #Chad, but don't hear those demands in the media!!




3/3 Theseslogans show the total rejection of #French imperialism, which controls their States in the name of the "war on #terrorism", The truth is its presence to protect and preserve its political, #military and economic interests.

El Presidente de México @lopezobrador_ preside la sesión del #ConsejoDeSeguridad sobre "Exclusión, desigualdad y conflicto".
Doy las gracias al Gobierno de México por convocar este debate sobre un tema que está al centro de tantos desafíos que enfrenta este Consejo. La pandemia de #COVID19 ha aumentado las desigualdades para las personas más pobres y vulnerables: @antonioguterres
El aumento de la #desigualdad es un factor de la creciente inestabilidad especialmente en áreas donde se carece de servicios básicos como salud, educación, seguridad y donde las injusticias históricas han creado ciclos interminables de pobreza: @antonioguterres

#Niger: This is by far the deadliest attack in #Torodi in southwestern #Tillaberi since the #Sahel insurgency spread to the area in late 2017.
#Niger: This specific area has been largely overlooked in the context of the broader #Sahel conflict and overshadowed by the #ISGS insurgency in northern #Tillaberi.
#Niger: The double-tap ambush took place near Boni, where a key Operation Saki 2 border outpost is located. #JNIM-affiliated fighters are the likely perpetrators, notably under the command of Abu Hanifa, a lieutenant of #KatibaMacina's Amadou Kouffa.

#Nigéria au delà des images de combats habituelles, à part quelques aspects mineurs d’armements, deux aspects importants dans le dernière vidéo de l’#EI, 1. la célébration du Eid entre combattants+familles #LacTchad & #Sambisa rapl. vidéos en provenance de #Syrie #Irak ~2013
#Nigéria 2. Les célébrations du Eid avec les communautés locales dans différentes régions, surtout à #Sambisa ancien fief #JAS #Shekau. Ces deux aspects démontrent une aisance et une implantation de plus en plus importante du groupe
Sur 14:16 de vidéo, ces 1 minute 17 sec. sont les plus importantes à mon sens. Pour le detail de l’armement visible l’usage d’un lance roquettes multiples est à noter. Pour plus de détails armement thread @CalibreObscura

NEW: Just released @UN report warns of "heightened threats emerging" from #ISIS #alQaida affiliated groups worldwide

"This is especially true in parts of West and East #Africa" per the report, based on member state intelligence
In West/East #Africa, affiliates of #ISIS #alQaida "can boast gains in supporters and territory under threat, as well as growing capabilities in fundraising & weapons, for example, in the use of drones" per the @UN report
#ISIS in #Syria "has evolved into an entrenched insurgency, exploiting weaknesses in local security to find safe havens & targeting forces engaged in counter-ISIL operations" per the @UN report

#Sahel: Today, #JNIM released the video "If they fight you, fight them". It's been almost three years since JNIM released their last full-length video with combat footage, namely "And the Battle Continues".
#Sahel: This could be explained by several factors: First, the focus has been on the political line; second, JNIM's official media presence has declined significantly, and this is against the backdrop of several key media figures (in #Algeria and #Mali) being killed
#Sahel: The decline is particularly relevant when compared to #ISGS, which received major boost from its formal integration into #IslamicState's organizational infrastructure & media apparatus. However, this last video marks the effective recovery of #JNIM media wing Al-Zallaqa.

1. Last night, #IS published a new statement from its spokesman Abu Hamza al-Qurashi in which, among other things, he lauded the recent exploits of #ISWAP#IS’s West Africa Province—in #Nigeria, alluding to Abubakar #Shekau's group, #JAS, as "khawarij."
2. #Qurashi said #IS was “pleased to hear the news of the bay’a” of former #Shekau followers.

This wasn't rhetoric. In the last two weeks, #ISWAP has been claiming attacks in parts of Borno in which it was previously inactive, places in which #JAS had previously been dominant.
3. After its victory over #JAS in May, many #JAS fighters joined #ISWAP, which consolidated these gains and began launching attacks in former #JAS areas quicker than many had anticipated it would.

The first such attack took place on 13 June southeast of #Maiduguri, near #Bama.

Le secteur formel privé du #Niger regroupe un nombre très faible d'entreprises, environ 1.400 dont peu de moyenne ou grande taille pour 15% environ du PIB. Ces entreprises sont:
1- Nigériennes, avec très peu de grandes entreprises

2- Africaines, notamment en lien avec le Nigéria
3- Européennes, avec un secteur privé historiquement présent, qui conserve des positions fortes
mais connaît un déclin assez net

4- Originaires de pays hors Afrique et Europe : c’est le segment le plus dynamique, avec l’arrivée récente d’opérateurs chinois, turcs ou indiens.
Le secteur informel est beaucoup plus important avec 85% du PIB environ que le secteur formel, mais il est également freiné par les mêmes contraintes que les entreprises formelles. Les entreprises des 2 secteurs vivent les mêmes difficultés.

Sauvegarder et Valoriser notre #patrimoine

A l’instar de nombreux pays, le #Niger possède un patrimoine très riche.

#Thread ⤵️
A titre de rappel, « le patrimoine peut être défini comme un ensemble de biens, matériels ou immatériels, dont l’une des caractéristiques est de permettre d’établir un lien entre les générations, tant passées qu’à venir…
Il est donc issu d’un héritage, produit de l’histoire, plus ou moins ancienne, d’un territoire ou d’un groupe social ».(
