Mauritania is a country highly exposed to climatic risks with extreme variability marked by recurrent droughts and also with episodic alternation of intense rainfall leading to floods. The wet season is relatively short, from July to September, and is concentrated in certain seasons, such as this year's, with abundant rainfall. Climate change is severely impacting Mauritania and increasing its vulnerability. Rainfall is becoming erratic and unpredictable. After the droughts, the rains have become more important from year to year and in recent years, Mauritania has faced devastating floods (Tintane in 2008, Rosso in 2009, Nouakchott in 2014, Guidimakha 2019, etc.).
The objective of the Bank's intervention is to contribute to covering the urgent needs for agricultural inputs that will enable the rapid resumption of production and thus contribute to strengthening the resilience of households affected by the floods. The Bank's action will help mitigate the impact of this natural disaster and prevent negative effects related to malnutrition and the development of epidemics. The P2RS Project Management Unit (PMU), reinforced by the PATAM project's procurement expert, will coordinate and manage the emergency project.
The activities to be financed by the Bank cover the acquisition, transportation and distribution of agricultural inputs (seeds, fertilizers and small tools) to meet the urgent needs of the affected population of the affected populations. This involves the supply of: 220 tons of seeds (110 tons of sorghum and 110 tons of cowpea); and 700 tons (236 tons of urea and 464 tons of triple TSP46 superphosphate, i.e. a sufficient quantity of inputs for an area of 11,000 ha of combined sorghum and cowpea crops).
