General

Mali is experiencing violence and conflict, and since competition over land and natural resources is growing, so are land-related disputed. Farmers and pastoralists need land tenure security to sustainable manage and collectively use natural resources and to undertake investments with long-run pay-offs needed for climate smart investment in productivity, diversification, and resilience. Over 90% of these farmers and pastoralists depend on customary tenure systems to access land and natural resources.The goal of the intervention is to promote stability, food security, climate resilient agricultural development and natural resources management by strengthening security of access to and rights over land and natural resources, with special attention for inclusivity (especially women and pastoralists), through establishing and capacitating Land Commissions.This will be realized through the following project strategies:• Formalized coordination mechanism for building capacity towards sustainable, inclusive and transparent Land Commissions. • Systematic approach for validating and sharing capacity building for Land Commissions, with a focus on mediation and inclusivity. • Setting up an independent monitoring and evaluation system of Land Commissions • Establishment of a network and exchange organization for Land Commissions.The project is implemented by SNV, KIT, Université des Sciences Juridiques et Politiques de Bamako, Coordination Nationale des Organisations Paysannes.
