KEY MESSAGES

- Description: Providing integrated solutions of organic agricultural inputs and technical & financial support adapted to small farmers' needs to durably enable them to protect and feed their soils, increase their yields and income
- Specificity: Providing small farmers with the necessary toolkit to adapt while attenuating climate change and durably contribute to food security
- Impact: + than 80.000 small farmers; replicability (underway) in other African countries

 

FUNCTIONING

INTEGRATED, INCLUSIVE AND SUSTAINABLE MODEL IMPLEMENTED IN MALI:
Cluster approach: multi-player networking in agricultural value chains (farmers, cooperatives/OP/GIE, biomass producers, retailers, development partners), proximity/partnership between players

Durable increase of agricultural yields: organic fertilization, water retention, sustainable agricultural practices

Food security & nutrition: durable increase of yields and incomes, improvement of agricultural products quality & preservation

Environment & health protection: improvement of carbon storage in soils, restoration of biodiversity & ecosystem balance, health protection for farmers, their families and consumers

Sustainability: real appropriation (capacity building, demo, sensitization, follow-up), access to nancing a climate insurance
