Project title: Increasing resilience to climatic stresses and shocks of 264,000 people in Mali, including those who are most at risk economically and physically.
RIC4REC will build the resiliency of 264,000 people in Mali — vulnerable to complex climate risks, including variable rainfall and drought — by helping communities identify, reinforce and scale-up their unique adaptive capacities. Through Community Management Resilience Climate Change (CMRCC), RIC4REC has been strengthening social cohesion, climate-adapted livelihoods and natural resource management in Koulikoro, Segou and Mopti regions. RIC4REC’s context specific adaptation measures empower vulnerable people to protect against asset loss and build new economic opportunities, while they emphasize the central role of women. In tandem, the project has been strengthening local and national government and infuse policy decisions with RIC4REC lessons learned.
Implementation country: Mali
Implementation regions: Koulikoro, Ségou, Mopti
Project duration: 36 months
Estimated total cost of the full project (In GBP sterling): £4,915,171
Project Objectives
Project outcome indicators, output indicators, and activities have been structured under the four (04) strategies to achieve project objectives which are:
Strategy 1. Making climate change adaptation a priority with strong community basis for implementation: RIC4REC uses a Community Managed Resiliency to Climate Change approach (a variant of community based adaptation) as a platform for building community capacity to identify, plan and act on reducing climate change vulnerabilities.
Strategy 2: Empower communities to use climate information to make management decisions about their livelihoods that reduce risk (Climate-Adapted Livelihoods): Through the use of early warning/climate and production advisory services, beneficiaries make better management decisions about their livelihoods that reduce risk and vulnerability. Climate and weather information is integrated with promotion of climate-smart practices and technologies.
Strategy 3. Increase assets and access to resources by introducing improved livelihood adaptation & NRM practices: Through climate adapted micro enterprise and improved managed of productive natural resources, beneficiaries are increasing assets and reducing the risk of loss and the depletion of environmental assets. These outcomes are structured under three themes.
Women’s increased access to markets and livelihood opportunities -BLUMONT will leverage results from previous Mali projects to train women’s marketing groups in sesame and fonio, and introduce improved practices for solar drying, food processing, and gardening.
Access to savings and credit through support women’s savings and credit associations.
NRM/Conservation: Beneficiaries adopt improved practices to protect environmental assets such as community-managed common natural resources, tree planting and assisted regeneration and fuel efficient cook stoves.
Strategy 4. Strengthen climate change Adaptation management (CCAM) at local and national levels: RIC4REC is supporting community advocacy for inclusion of priority issues affecting their resiliency in local government planning and budgeting. At the national level, RIC4REC is supporting AEDD’s communication of national policies, programs, projects and best practices in climate change adaptation.
