AGADEZ, Niger, 25 September 2009 Unprecedented rainfall has led to severe flooding in northern Niger's Agadez region in recent weeks.

In response, UNICEF is now coordinating with the government, United Nations agencies and other partners to see that children and women receive access to basic services.

"It is UNICEF's priority to ensure that essential services are available at the sites for affected people, in line with its core commitments for children in emergencies. This includes access to basic health, nutrition, potable water and sanitation, education, protection and psycho-social support," said UNICEF Representative in Niger Akhil Iyer.

The organization is also working on disseminating life-saving messages on good health and hygiene practices.
