Supporting Mali to advance their NAP Process

Introduction

Status of assistance to Mali for their NAP process:

  • A NAP support mission to Mali is being prepared, which will help to enhance the understanding of the NAP and of the tools and methods available to advance the process. High level decisions makers will be sensitized on the NAP process during this upcoming support mission.
  • A Government delegation from Mali attended the NAP-GSP / PAG-PNA Africa Regional Training Workshop in April 2014.
  • NAP-GSP partner International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) is planning to commence support for the NAP process in Mali in 2014.
  • A USD 10 million grant is being channeled through IFAD’s Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP) to support the l'Agence de l'environnement et du développement durable (AEDD) in Mali. This partnership will work to ensure that the climate change adaptation needs of smallholder farmers are reflected in the NAP process. 

Etat de l’appui au processus PNA du Mali:

  • Une mission d'appui est en cours de préparation pour améliorer la compréhension du PNA et des outils et approches disponibles pour faire avancer le processus, ainsi que pour sensibiliser les décideurs politiques.
  • Une délégation du gouvernement du Mali a assisté à la Atelier régional de formation en Afrique Organisé par le PAG-PNA - Addis Abeba, Ethiopie, 21-24 avril 2014.
  • Le partenaire du PAG-PNA, le Fonds International de Développement Agricole (FIDA) lancera son appui au processus PNA au Mali dès le début de l’année 2014.
  • Un don de 10 millions USD sera versé à travers le programme d’adaptation pour les petites exploitations agricoles (ASAP) pour appuyer l'Agence de l'environnement et du développement durable (AEDD) au Mali. Ce partenariat visera à garantir que les besoins d’adaptation aux changements climatiques des petits exploitants agricoles soient reflétés dans le processus PNA.

Country Initiatives

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

Flood Hazard and Climate Risk Management to Secure Lives and Assets in Mali

Flooding and other climate change risks have a severe impact on the people of Mali. Significant flooding events over the past 30 years have impacted over 3 million people, taking lives, destroying infrastructure, causing serious economic losses, and derailing efforts to build more resilient lives and livelihoods.

Enhancing Climate Resilience of the Vulnerable Communities and Ecosystems in Somalia

With financing from the Global Environment Facility’s (GEF) Least Developed Country Countries Fund, the Federal Government of Somalia, in partnership with UNDP, is working to bolster the resilience of vulnerable communities and ecosystems to climate change. The project is working in semi-autonomous states in Somalia: South West State, Galmudug State, Puntland, and Somaliland, which unilaterally declared itself an independent republic in 1991.

Mali National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA)

Mali's NAPA is aimed at addressing the need to develop a realistically achievable country-driven program of action for adaptation to climate change in key sectors such as agriculture, forestry, water resources, coastal zone and human health. It will specifically develop a program of priority activities addressing the urgent and immediate needs and concerns of Mali, relating to the adverse effects of climate change. Mali shares with other LDCs a low adaptive capacity to respond to climate change impacts, arising from weak socio-economic conditions.

Mali's Second National Communication - June 2011

The creation of a National Communication offers countries the opportunity to contribute with technically sound studies and information that can be used for designing mitigation and adaptation measures, and project proposals that can and will help increase their resilience to the impacts of climate change. Activities generally include: V&A assessments, Greenhouse Gas Inventory preparation, Mitigation Analysis or Education, and awareness raising activities.

Strengthening the resilience of women producer groups and vulnerable communities in Mali

The Government of Mali is currently tackling development constraints which include various agricultural and rural development initiatives focusing on stimulating rural economies, improving agricultural productivity and promoting sustainable land management. This UNDP-supported "Strengthening the resilience of women producer groups and vulnerable communities in Mali" project aims to integrate climate variability into development strategies, with a special focus on food security.

Programme for the Support of the National Adaptation Strategy to Climate Change in Mali

Like other countries in the Sahel, Mali is susceptible to climate variability and is suffering from the impacts of global climate change. According to forecasts, rainfall will fluctuate even more in the future and the frequency of extreme events such as drought or heavy rain will increase. The poorest groups are harder hit by the impacts of climate change because they depend directly on natural resources for their livelihoods.
