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

Project Outline

This project seeks to strengthen the adaptive capacity and climate resilience of vulnerable communities and the economy of Mali by developing the capacity of national hydro-meteorological and warning services, which will in turn support adaptation planning for public and private sector users.

Potential Indicators of Key Impacts

Expected total number of direct and indirect beneficiaries, disaggregated by gender (reduced vulnerability or increased resilience):

  1. Direct beneficiaries: 2,700,000 persons (50% of total beneficiaries will be female)
  2. Indirect beneficiaries: 2,600,000 persons
    18% of the total population (50% of the vulnerable population)
  3. Other related indicators:
    • Change in expected loss of life and economic assets (US $) due to the impact of extreme climate-related disasters in the geographic area of the GCF intervention: Target = Baseline - 5%.
    • Number of food-secure households (in areas/periods at risk of climate change impacts): Target = 2.2 million.
    • Number and value of physical assets made more resilient to climate variability and change, considering human benefits: Target = US $100 million, 5.3 million people.
    • Degree of integration/mainstreaming of climate change in national and sector planning and coordination of information sharing and project implementation: Target = Appropriate regulatory documents are in place.
    • Evidence that climate data is collected, analyzed, and applied to decision-making in climate sensitive sectors at critical times by the government, private sector, and men/women: Target = 2 public sector services (food security, civil protection).
    • Perception of men, women, vulnerable populations, and emergency response agencies of the timeliness, content, and reach of early warning systems: Target = Baseline + 20%.
    • Use by vulnerable households, communities, businesses, and public sector services of fund-supported tools to respond to climate change and variability: Target = 2 million farmers.
    • Number of males and females reached by climate-related early warning systems: 2.6 million males, and 2.7 million females.
    • Number of males and females made aware of climate threats and related appropriate responses: 2.6 million males, and 2.7 million females.
