About this project


In the Strategy of the NCSA, Mali defined the following strategic vision for strengthening the capacities to manage the environment on a global and national level following: Towards 2025, Mali will have developed a permanent aptitude to evaluate and solve the crucial problems posed by political choices and the implementation modalities of the various development strategies, plans and programs, by appreciating the true value of the possibilities and limits of their repercussions on the environment at global and national levels, according to the fundamental needs for its populations. In discussions on the follow up of the NCSA exercise, GoMA decided to bundle the focus on two axes of the action plan: Strategic Axe no. 1 “Integrating global environmental needs into management information systems and monitoring” by strengthening the National Strategy for Environmental Information Management, and to Strategic Axe no. 3 “Integrating MEAs provisions within national policy, legislative, and regulatory frameworks"'- in this case, by integrating global environment into local planning and development (e.g. the PDSEC).


Strengthening a consensus and coordinated strategy to integrate global and national environmental priorities within the decision-making processes at the highest level and to have this trickle down towards the local level.
