Restoring Food Security and Building Resilience in Crisis-Affected Communities (Mali)

Mali

Titre : Restoring Food Security and Building Resilience in Crisis-Affected Communities (Mali)

Pays : Mali

Date : 2015 – 2017

Program : Microenterprise Development for Vulnerable Groups ; Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Climate Change Adaptation

Contexte
Reducing food insecurity and supporting the economic recovery of 21,783 conflict- and drought-affected people in 18 communes in five Cercles in the Mopti and Timbuktu regions. Building upon successes achieved under NEF’s RECAPE II project, this next iteration employs commodity-fixed food vouchers to support microenterprise recovery, expands market based access to seeds and tools, and introduces improved NRM activities in 16 communes to (1) improve vulnerable individuals’ access to food, (2) help households to rebuild productive assets and diversify livelihood strategies, and (3) jumpstart local economies through the resumption of trade and production.

Impact
After launching in July 2015, baseline studies show that 3,080 microenterprise owners (2,310 women) received grain vouchers to offset household food costs, allowing them to redirect income toward the gradual recapitalization of their business. Using "seed protection" vouchers, 6,450 individuals (3,870 women) avoided consumption of household seed stocks at the height of the "lean season", and 1,150 individuals (559 women) planted ecologically and economically beneficial tree species.
