    Mali is currently facing many challenges due to climate change that is significantly affecting all communities in the country, and agricultural producers in particular. In order to meet these climate challenges, the project aimed at building the capacities of agro-pastoralists in the Banamba, Kita and Niono districts to help them cope with climate change. With the exception of gender, the project strategy is sound and it reached the objective to boost the capacity of Mali's agro-pastoral activities to cope with climate change. A functional interactive community chat created by the project, as well as the Village Savings and Loan Associations set-up, are some of the elements that strengthen the resilience of agro-pastoralists and render project achievements more sustainable.

    Evaluation of the project "Integrating climate resilience into agricultural and pastoral production for food security in vulnerable rural areas through the farmers field school approach

    Burkina Faso's socio-economic characteristics and geographical location make it vulnerable to disasters in general and climate change in particular. According to the country's projections, climate change will lead to: a decrease in groundwater recharge; the disappearance of certain surface watercourses and forest tributaries; disruptions in the plant growth cycle as well as in crop, livestock and natural resource management systems. The project, implemented by FAO from May 2015 to August 2020, aimed to “enhance the capacity of Burkina Faso’s agricultural and pastoral sectors to cope with climate change, by mainstreaming climate change adaptation (CCA) practices and strategies into on-going agricultural development initiatives and agricultural policies and programming and upscaling of farmers adoption of CCA technologies and practices through a network of already established farmer field schools (FFS)”. The project has satisfactorily contributed to building the capacity to adapt to climate change in the agricultural and pastoral sectors and in the populations of vulnerable areas of Burkina Faso. More specifically, the project has contributed highly to the sustainable management of 20 432.75 ha of land, including 15 632.75 ha of cultivated land and 4 800 ha of pasture. The project built the capacities of 29 201 beneficiaries, including 10 528 (57 percent women) in farmer field schools/agro-pastoral field schools. However, this result is weakened by the lack of anticipation in formalising collaboration with co-financing partners involved in these activities.
