Titre : Enhancing Food Security and Building Resilience for Agro-Pastoralists In Gao and Menaka (Mali)

Pays /Région : Mali

Code projet : MLI-17/A/100614

Durée : Jan 2017 - Dec 2017

Objectif (s)  : Mercy Corps will ensure that conflict-affected households in Gao (Gao and Ansongo Circles) and Menaka regions strengthen and diversify livelihoods resulting in enhanced food security, improved inter- and intra-community cooperation, decreased likelihood of conflict and strengthened resilience to future shocks. Strategic Objective 1 : Vulnerable households in Gao, Ansongo and Menaka cercles recover productive agricultural and pastoral livelihoods. Strategic Objective 2 : Vulnerable households in Gao, Ansongo and Menaka can withstand economic shocks through access to savings and credit.

Présentation
The program will work with 5,500 agro-pastoralist and pastoralist households, including returnees, IDPs, and host communities that have been impacted by the ongoing conflict and climate-related shocks to restore and protect livelihoods, resulting in increased household income generation potential and enhanced food security. SO1 : Mercy Corps will engage existing agricultural associations, predominately women’s gardening groups, training 2,000 farmers on climate-sensitive production, harvesting, processing and storage techniques. Farmers will receive seed vouchers for climate-resilient varieties of seeds for staple crops (millet and rice) and vegetables (potatoes, onions, shallots, tomatoes, etc.), serving the dual purpose of enhancing and diversifying household consumption of nutrient-rich foods, while providing an alternative source of income. The program will also strengthen commercial outlets for agricultural production. As rains become more unpredictable, households in the targeted regions find water resources increasingly scarce, and must rely on irrigation for agriculture activities. The program will rehabilitate community irrigation infrastructure through cash-for-work with 800 households (target : 30% female-headed households), increasing the land under rice cultivation and improving water access for vegetable farming. Projects will be selected in close consultation with community water management committees, which will be strengthened to oversee access and maintenance of water resources, with a target of at least 30% representation by women ….
