Project description

To successfully achieve its development and immediate objectives, the PAPAM will have a three-pronged focus aiming at addressing the main bottlenecks to Malian agriculture modernization, i.e., low agriculture productivity, insufficient productive infrastructure and weak sector coordination. Thus, the project will be implemented thru the three following components aligned with the above focus: (i)Technology, including SLWM techniques transfer and service provision to producers, such as research, training, advisory services, financing, input supply, equipments, etc.; (ii)Irrigation infrastructure: investments in small and large-scale irrigation; and, (iii)Comprehensive programmatic approach and sector monitoring, with view to creating the required enabling policy and institutional environment for SLWM development and productivity increase. This component will also ensure close monitoring of sector progress to improve policy decision-making.
