Where we work

MALI

UNCDF has been present in Mali since 1982.

Over the past three decades UNCDF has worked to improve Mali's planning capacity and management of local development, particularly in municipalities that are highly vulnerable to food insecurity.

Today, UNCDF offers “last mile” finance models that unlock public and private resources, especially at the domestic level, to reduce poverty and support local economic development.

Through Local Development Finance Practice, UNCDF is implementing Finance for Food (F4F) programme by investing in infrastructure for improved food security, and helping the government make food security a central part of local planning and budgets. Additionally, UNCDF is implementing Local Climate Adaptive Living Facility (LoCAL) programme, designed to help Mali government channel global climate adaptation financing to local level and cope with increased cost of building resilience against climate change and natural disasters. UNCDF’s Local Cross-Border Initiative (LOBI) in Mali is strengthening cross-border governance in the West Africa region through the definition of regional and national strategies and promotion of pilot cross-border local development processes.
