Democratic Governance Support Program (PAGOD)
PAGOD aims to strengthen the legitimacy and representativity of Nigers political institutions, as well as to improve transparency and the participation of key stakeholders in the management of public affairs at all levels. It will contribute to the consolidation of the ongoing democratic process, thereby contributing to the peace and stability that are necessary to ensure the sustainable socio-economic development of the country. This program is in line with the RAAYI program (Media Support Program in Niger, 2018-2023) implemented by the Fondation Hirondelle through its Kalangou Studio in Niger.
PAGOD is part of the third area of Swiss cooperation in Niger 2016-2019: (1) education, (2) food security and (3) governance and peace. These priority areas aim to address the most structuring challenges in the fight against poverty and fragility.
