Precarious situation in the Sahel, urgent action needed to face the lean season
Financed by the European Union Emergency Trust Fund for Africa and implemented by the Luxembourg Agency for Development Co-operation (LuxDev), the ADEL project targets vulnerable populations in the regions of Gao and Timbuktu in northern Mali. It draws on the achievements of previous projects aimed at reviving the local economy and supporting communities in northern Mali (RELAC and RELAC II), implemented between January 2016 and September 2019. The experience of these projects has shown that it is possible to implement development actions effectively despite the challenging security situation. The objective of the ADEL project is to support local economic development and the improvement of the governance of local authorities in 42 municipalities of intervention. In a fragile intervention context and unstable security situation, more than 100 local associations and cooperatives will be supported through the consolidation and/or implementation of economic projects in various sectors (agriculture, livestock, fishing, crafts) in order to revive and develop the local economy and contribute to the stability and well-being of the people. The project targets the entire population, particularly young women and men aged 15 to 40 (project result 2).
