Strengthening resilience and ensuring food security for local people in need and cooperatives in northern Mali:

1.) Income and food security as well as water supply for returned refugees, IDPs and disadvantaged population groups is guaranteed and their labour is preserved.

2.) The local cooperatives secure their livelihoods through the yields from agricultural production (rice, grain, horticulture, fodder cultivation).

3.) The cooperatives master the techniques they have learnt (cultivation, processing of products). Information and knowledge on the management and organisation of cooperatives are applied

4.) Farmers’ cooperative organisations provide the necessary advice and support, particularly in the maintenance and repair of pumps and equipment. Disputes over land use have been reduced
