Project General Description

The Mali South II Rural Development Project is part of the Malian Government's policy. This policy aims to reduce rural poverty and food dependency in the country and improve farmers' incomes. The project is to contribute to the food security of Mali and improve the incomes and living conditions of the population. It’s initiated by the Malian Government through the Mali Fiber and Textile Company (CMDT), with the support of the African Development Bank Group, to continue and consolidate the actions carried out during the previous phases. The expected outputs and outcomes are: increase in land areas cultivated, enhancing the capacity of the producers; improvement of the maintenance of the agricultural machinery; development of infrastructure to open up the project area and improve market access and provision of drinking water. The project has five main components, namely: (a) strengthening village institutions and land management; (b) production development; (c) support action; (d) rural infrastructure; and (e) monitoring and evaluation.
