Titre : Programme de Développement Durable du Delta Intérieur du Niger -Wetlands PDD DIN" Phase 2

Pays : Mali

Date : 2017 – 2020

Agence : Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency
Implementing organisation :

The Inner Delta of River Niger in Mali is the second largest inland wetland in Africa after the Okavango Delta in Botswana, and has been classified as a "Ramsar site" in 2004 (an intergovernmental convention on flooded areas defining a national framework for action and international cooperation on sustainable management). The delta covers the regions of Mopti, Ségou and Timbuktu whereas the maximum inundated area in the wet season is currently around 20,000 square kilometers which becomes around 4000 square kilometers during the dry season. In order to put such an ambition into reality, the government of Mali with the technical and financial support from Sweden has implemented a Program entitled " Programme de Development Durable du Delta Intérieur du Niger -Wetlands PDD DIN" from November 2013 throughout 2017.

Given the positive results of phase I, the government of Mali and Sida are convinced that a second phase is necessary in order to consolidate the achievements, to expand the program scope and develop a coherent and shared vision and methodology for the sustainable management of the natural resources of the Delta including biodiversity conservation/enhancement in a perspective of conflict alleviation and climate change effects reduction.

Total committed amount : USD 9,296,794
The overall Programme Budget is 105 MSEK out of which Sida´s contribution is 94.3 MSEK. The government of Mali has planned to contribute for 10.7 MSEK for the period 2017-2022. The level of Sida’s budget has increased from 55.9 MSEK (Phase I) to 94.3 MSEK (phase II), a total increase of 38.4 MSEK due to the fact that in addition to the consolidation of previous achievements, the land use management plan will be implemented, and the regions of Ségou and Timbuktu where only some entry activities were developed during the first phase will be significantly covered during the second phase. The fact that a formal and biding document (Global Land use and development plan) supports the set-up of the phase II and the important level of government financial contribution (10.7 MSEK) are good signs for sustainability and ownership.
