Enhancing Adaptive Capacity and Resilience to Climate Change in the Agriculture Sector in Mali

Mali

Titre :Enhancing Adaptive Capacity and Resilience to Climate Change in the Agriculture Sector in Mali

Country : Mali

Climate-Related Hazards Addressed : Drought/Water Scarcity

Implementing Agencies & Partnering Organizations : Mali National Directorate of Agriculture ; UNDP ; GEF

Contexte
According to current information on climatic variability and predicted climate change scenarios for Mali, the country’s long-term development is expected to be significantly affected by : both insufficient and unpredictable rainfall ; increased frequency of flooding ; and more violent winds in the Sahel and Sahara regions. As Mali’s agriculture sector is highly dependent on climatic factors, it is generally agreed upon that climate change will produce great impacts in this sector, even when considering the uncertainty of the forecasting models.

Project
Scientific assessments carried out in the context of the Initial National Communication (INC) and the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) has shown that climate change will most probably lead to significant losses in crop production. In turn, these impacts on the agriculture sector will have direct effects on food security in the country.

Contributions to respond to these barriers and reduce the level of vulnerabilities to climate change will be achieved through the pursuit of specific outcomes including : (i) the improvement of capacities to prevent and manage the impacts of climate change on agricultural production and food security ; (ii) the strengthening of climate resilience of agricultural production systems and the most vulnerable agro-pastoral communities ; and (iii) the dissemination of the best practices generated by the project.
