LoCAL in Mali aims to demonstrate and highlight the role of local governments in promoting local climate change adaptation and resilience measures by integrating climate funding in budget transfer mechanisms and in the planning and allocation of local resources. Since inception in 2015, LoCAL has invested in 36 local adaptation initiatives in Mali, accounting for about $350,000 and directly benefiting more than 29,154 people, mostly women. A joint programme with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization and LoCAL, established in 2019 to support risk management and mitigate inter-community conflicts through the PBCRG system, demonstrates LoCAL’s flexibility and potential to contribute to peace-building.
