Project General Description

The Emergency Food and Nutrition Security and Production Project (PUPSAN-AEFPF) is designed because of the multidimensional crisis since 2012 and especially the 2020-2021 agricultural season, which has been difficult because of insufficient rainfall that is poorly distributed over time and space, as well as the COVID-19 crisis. In response to this situation, the Government, acting through the Food Security Commission, developed a National Response Plan 2022 (NRP 2022) which is the annual breakdown of all actions to promote food and nutritional security in the country. In fact, through the PUPSAN project, the Bank will provide financing to strengthen the significant impacts on the resilience of vulnerable populations, with a view to supporting the crop production sector by strengthening productivity gains, through the mastery of climate-resilient techniques, the provision of plant material and other appropriate agricultural inputs. The Bank's support will increase the availability of foodstuff needed to cover the food and nutritional needs of the Malian population, create value added in the project areas, generate substantial additional income for producers and other stakeholders in the targeted sectors, improve the balance of trade and reduce Mali's dependence on imports of these targeted products. The project will also contribute to strengthening the resilience of the population by improving the employability of the youth and women in the targeted sectors. It will be based on three components, namely: (i) improving access to improved seeds and adapted technologies, (ii) facilitating producers' access to quality fertilizers, (iii) improving governance, supporting the implementation of reforms in the seed and fertilizer sectors, and project coordination and management.

Project Objectives

The objective of PUPSAN is to contribute to an increase in agricultural production and mitigate the impact, on the Malian population, of rising food and agricultural input prices caused by a global surge in cereal prices.


The project intervenes in ten (10) regions, two (2) Rural Development Authorities (ODR) and the District of Bamako, targeting 35,274 vulnerable male and female producers of the selected crop species. The regions concerned are Kayes, Kita, Sikasso, Koutiala, Bougouni, Koulikoro, Dioila, Timbuktu, Gao, Ménaka and the District of Bamako. The Niger Basin Authority and the Ségou Rice Authority in the Ségou region are involved in rice production.
