Description and results


The project aims to sustainably develop irrigated agriculture in Mali to increase food security through increased agricultural production, mainly in the regions of Mopti and Koulikoro. Key activities are focusing on the construction and rehabilitation of productive infrastructure, such as irrigated fields, micro dams, warehouses and rural roads; coaching and training of agricultural producers to support increased productivity and the development of knowledge and tools; and protecting and improving the sustainable development of natural resources, specifically soil and water. The initiative is contributing to the implementation of the German small-scale irrigation program and supports the implementation of the National Small-Scale Irrigation Program in Mali.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: increased production and productivity of the agricultural producers benefiting from the Koulikoro and Mopti intervention regions; improved conditions for the conservation, processing and marketing of agricultural production in the intervention regions.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of March 2018 include the following: 1) 141 new hydro-agricultural facilities (AHAs) were constructed and 109 AHA were rehabilitated, for a total of 250 AHAs developed since 2014, including village irrigation areas, ponds, and micro-dams on a total area of 14,291 ha, of which 3,899 ha are owned by women; 2) 24,530 producers now have access to irrigated lands, of whom 5,807 are women; 3) ten post-harvest storage and preservation warehouses were built, for a total storage capacity of 1,710 tonnes; 4) 89 km of roads were built and are contributing to the marketing and enhancement of agricultural products; 5) 9,623 people, of whom 3,300 are women, were trained in agricultural production techniques, hydro-agricultural infrastructure management, processing, rice marketing, and agricultural entrepreneurship issues; and 6) additional agricultural production for 2017 2018 is estimated to be 17,394 tonnes, including 8,524 tonnes of rice and 8,881 tonnes of garden produce.
