This project aims to strengthen the resilience of vulnerable communities, mainly women and girls, in the Mopti and Ségou regions of Mali. The project also aims to improve the food, nutrition, and health situation, increase agricultural productivity and incomes of target populations, while tackling the effects of climate change on food security in their communities. Project activities include: (1) rehabilitating health and drinking water infrastructure in health centers, schools, and households in targeted communities; (2) strengthening the prevention and management of malnutrition in children, and pregnant and lactating women; (3) distributing nutritious meals to students; (4) organizing village savings and credit associations, school gardens, and income-generating activities for small producers, particularly women; (5) creating and rehabilitating productive community assets (irrigated perimeter, reforestation of drylands, water collection systems, etc.); (6) working to ensure joint management of the natural resources shared between farmers and herders; and (7) building the capacity of women to make informed decisions in households and communities by providing leadership training and raising awareness of gender equality in communities. The project is jointly implemented by the World Food Programme (WFP), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
