The level of climate finance in the agricultural sector is very small compared with other sectors. Less than 5% of global climate finance is targeted to agricultural sector and, even much less to smallholder farmers. This is in contrast to the responsibility placed on agricultural sector to produce more food by 2050 under climatic uncertainties.
Policy workshop: Climate finance to support agriculture in Mali
CTA supported this project partner, World Vision Mali to commission a national study to review NDCs and related policy documents in Mali to identify level of implementation of NDCs, assess the status accorded to agriculture in the policy documents and the engagement of agricultural stakeholders in the implementation of the NDCs, and identify emerging opportunities and climate financing models to support agriculture in the country.
The national stakeholder workshop, co-organised with World Vision and the Agency on environment and sustainable development (AEDD), is used to engage stakeholders including officials from the Ministry of Agriculture, farmers’ organisations, NGOs, national designated authority, Ministry of Finance, agro-allied companies, financial institutions, insurance companies and policy think-tanks in the country.
