Review of Current and Planned Adaptation Action in Mali
In Mali, the impacts of climate change, including droughts, floods, rising temperatures, and later onset of rainy seasons, present challenges to the country’s efforts to stabilize, recover from political crisis and prosper.
Even though GDP has slowly risen since 2013, the country remains in an extremely fragile state. Climate change has the potential to amplify Mali’s fragility: climate risks, especially recurrent droughts, have historically played a role in exacerbating these issues, causing significant damage to agriculture and livestock. The Government of Mali has made considerable progress in drafting climate change policies and strategies; however, integration of climate risks across sectors remains weak.
