Project General Description

This intervention concerns Grassroots Community Resilience Building Support Project (PARCB). It aims to contribute to community resilience building by improving the employability of young people and women in climate-resilient and low-carbon agricultural value chains in Koulikoro region and Yanfolila Circle. The project will also help to create an entrepreneurial ecosystem and support infrastructure for the Bancoumana-based agro-industrial pole of PDZSTA-KB (Project to Develop the Special Agro-industrial Processing Zone at Koulikoro and peri-urban areas of Bamako) and consolidate the achievements of PRESAN-KL and PRESA-DCI through the implementation of activities that were cancelled by the Bank after project restructuring. PARCB is also complementary with PAURPED (Emergency Support for the Resilience of Displaced Persons) and P2 P2RS MALI (Programme to Build Resilience to Food and Nutrition Insecurity in the Sahel - Phase 2), which are being assessed in terms of their intervention areas and target populations. It comprises three main components, namely: (1) Development of production, processing and marketing infrastructure, (2) Resilience building through entrepreneurship and climate-resilient agricultural value chain development and (3) project management and coordination.

Project Objectives

The overall objective of PARCB is to contribute to community resilience building by improving the employability of youth and women in climate-resilient and low-carbon agricultural value chains in Koulikoro Region and Yanfolila Circle. The specific objectives are to (i) reduce the population’s vulnerability to potential climate shocks and build their response capacity through the construction of climate-resilient and low-carbon infrastructure and facilities; and (ii) build the population’s resilience through (a) increased levels of economic diversification, (b) the quality of health care, education and information and communication technologies (ICTs), and (c) minimising losses associated with climate shocks through a sovereign insurance scheme against severe drought risks.

PARCB will reach 49,564 direct beneficiaries, 23,397 of them women and 26,168 men, including young people, i.e., 47.2% and 52.8% respectively, and 297,386 indirect beneficiaries, including 140,381 women and 157,005 men in eighteen (18) municipalities in the circles of Koulikoro, Kangaba and Kati in Koulikoro region as well as Yanfolila circle in Bougouni region.
