$37.2 million for the Food and Nutrition Security Enhancement Project to support water control, improve farm productivity, and build capacity for local authorities and farmer organizations.


The Food and Nutrition Security Enhancement Project supports Mali's National Agricultural Sector Investment Program (PNISA).  Mali’s economy is based on the rural sector, whose activities are highly dependent on changes in climatic conditions. This project targets (i) investment in water control to reduce climatic risks; (ii) increased productivity in key agricultural sectors by adopting the value chain approach; and (iii) capacity building for local authorities and farmer organizations to take charge of agricultural development and improve food and nutrition security. 



The GAFSP Private Sector Window is also financing the Global Warehouse Finance Program (GWFP) to the state owned Compagnie Malienne pour le Development du Textile (CMDT) (GWFP Mali Cotton).
