Agadez, Niger A community stabilization project, recently launched by the International Organization for Migration and supported through the UNCCD 3S (Sustainability. Stability. Security) Initiative, is giving young Nigerians in Agadez a reason to dream of a better future in their communities. The group of thirty is made up of returnees from Libya, ex migrant smugglers and youth at risk; their lives are all guided by a mix of ambition, uncertainty and, most importantly, hope. They are now looking to the agricultural sector for opportunities to improve their lives.
