Climate Change Adaptation in Mali Fact Sheet
This adaptation fact sheet provides an overview of sector vulnerabilities and adaptation actions for Mali. Mali is highly vulnerable to climate change and variability. Droughts, storms, strong winds, and increased temperature variability are the climate risks of greatest concern. The Malian government and international and national institutions and organizations began addressing climate-related challenges in the 1960s and have since conducted several vulnerability assessments, enhanced climate observations and modeling, and developed and implemented adaptation plans and capacity building efforts. However, adaptation needs remain, including the necessity of additional and more accessible research on climate change impacts and vulnerabilities at local community levels with particular focus on food security, water resources, and coastal resources. Additional funding for implementation of adaptation plans and strategies is also needed.Find other country and regional climate risk management resources here.
