Located in the Sahel of West Africa, Mali has a dry climate with 65 % of its territory under semi-desert and desert conditions. Climate change is expected to increase the variability and the incidence of extreme weather events, such as droughts, floods, intense rainfall events. Without improved planning and management and particularly improved water management, climate change will destroy crops and property, and lead to greater degradation of already fragile soils. Regardless of whether there is an increase or decrease in precipitation, increased temperatures will cause greater evapo-transpiration, which will lead to drier soils in many areas and a corresponding decrease in water availability.

The main objective of the programme is to increase the resilience of vulnerable communities and their adaptive capacity to climate change in the regions of Mopti and Timbuktu including the Faguibine system zone. The programme has the following specific objectives:

  1. Increased climate change resilience of local water systems in Mopti and Timbuktu regions
  2. The production of local livelihood systems such as agriculture, fisheries, livestock, and forest enhanced under climate change
  3. Enhanced capacity of local institutions and of communities to better adapt to climate change.
