Présentation
The project « Renforcement de la résilience des populations vulnérables face à la variabilité climatique » is implemented by FAO during the period July 2018-December 2019. The total budget is 20 M SEK.

The expected impact is improved food security and nutrition among vulnerable people in Gao, Mopti and Timbuktu regions. The target is to reduce the number of people in acute food insecurity by 5 % among the 24 000 beneficiaries. The expected outcome is that beneficiaries rely on livelihoods that are resilient to climate change.

The following are the main expected results ; 1) Increased capacity of vulnerable households to cope with climate change variabilities, 2) Sustainably improved monetary revenues of vulnerable households, primarily women headed households (share of households that have increased revenues), 3) Improved nutrition and social protection of beneficiaries (share of households that produce food needed for better nutrition).

Mali is recurrently hit by droughts that result in urgent food insecurity. In 2017, the rains ended early and pockets of drought also occurred during the rainy season. This affected the level of food production and availability of productive pastures. In large parts of the country, as much as a third of the population is experiencing food insecurity. Pastoralists that normally start to move south in February, started the yearly move already in November in 2017. The water levels in the Niger river during the 2017/2018 season are comparable to those of 1984 and 2011, years when Mali was hit by drought. The analysis of humanitarian needs shows that 4,1 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance which is a significant increase from 3,8 in 2017.

The project is in line with national priorities and is coordinated with other relevant actors, especially WFP and UNICEF. FAO, WFP and UNICEF have together partnered to respond to the crisis early and to ensure scaling up. The project enables FAO to carry out important activities within the scope of the defined areas of responsibilities that have been agreed upon. FAO is thereby focusing mainly on support to pastoralists, regeneration of pastures, rehabilitation of water points and nutrition. Coordination is ensured through several fora where FAO is active, both among humanitarian and development actors.

The project is also a result of a collaboration between Sida’s humanitarian team and the Embassy in Bamako that manages long-term development funds in order to strengthen the interplay between humanitarian assistance and long-term development cooperation to contribute to resilience . A joint analysis is the basis for this intervention. Learning is built into the project to further increase collaboration, exchange and knowledge.
