SNV in Mali office
Mali ranks 186 out of 191 on the Human Development Index. Since 1970, SNV has established a sustainable local presence. Despite the security and climatic crisis, SNV continues to improve communities’ resilience and adaptation measures.
Present since 1979
In Mali, we contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals through the effectiveness of our programmes and our influencing strategy across our three sectors: Agri-food, Energy, and Water.
Our communities of intervention face challenges such as political instability, security threats, and climate change. These issues lead to problems like lack of resource, armed conflicts, environmental degradation, loss of biodiversity and economic setbacks across the different sectors.
To this end, we are building the capacity of communities to adapt to the deficiencies caused by these crises. In 2022, thousands of farmers, pastoralists, and agro-pastoralists have been impacted by our interventions in the agri-food sector. In the same year, 7,500 households adopted clean cooking stoves. In the area of agro-pastoralism, we developed a digital solution through public and private partnerships that is used by 27,795 pastoralists.
In our efforts to promote youth employment, we have supported the creation of 18,646 job opportunities and 40 small and medium enterprises, including 20 horticultural farms. Within our work across the sectors, we focus on three core themes: gender equality and social inclusion, climate adaptation and mitigation, and strong institutions and effective governance. Thus, we work openly with institutions at the community, local and national levels towards greater accountability, efficiency, transparency, and inclusion.
