Africa Hydromet Program - Strengthening Climate Resilience in Sub-Saharan Africa: Mali Country Proje
GCF-FP012

Project Description
Strengthening the adaptive capacity and climate resilience of vulnerable communities in Mali by developing hydro-meteorological weather warning services to support adaptation planning. Mali experiences extreme weather and climate variability, resulting in high exposure to floods and droughts. The livelihoods of 80% of Mali's population are dependent on predominantly rain-fed agriculture, and about 5.3 million people are directly exposed to drought or flooding. Early weather warning systems can help government, communities and the private sector better plan and adapt to climate events. Better hydro-meterorological (hydromet) information can inform infrastructure development, improve food security, and support better private sector investment decisions. The project will support training and capacity building, expanding and upgrading existing hydromet observation networks including Automatic Weather Stations and hydrological stations, as well as investments to enhance data collection and communication systems. A national network for climate services will be established for the first time in order to develop a national framework for climate services. Improved flood and drought warning systems will also be developed, as well as building systems to ensure that early warnings reach the municipal and community level through better aE˜last mile' systems, and improved awareness at the local level.

If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating a problem-solving dialogue or, if that is not possible, conducting an independent investigation into whether the GCF has complied with its environmental and social policies. The IRM is newly created and is still in the process of developing its procedures and website. More information about the IRM and how you can file a complaint is forthcoming. You can contact the IRM at irm@gcfund.org.
