Climate resilience of populations

We are working to support and build the capacity of women's cooperatives, farmers and young entrepreneurs to find innovative solutions to climate adaptation. We support the sustainable management of forests and pasture lands, the discovery of alternative sources of income and the strengthening of dialogue at local and national level. We lead “ResoClimat Mali” network, which brings together 140 civil society organizations promoting best agricultural and technological practices.

Management of natural resources and renewable energies

It is essential for us to contribute to the sustainable management of natural resources and ecosystems, to put in place the conditions necessary to broaden populations' access to clean energy and drinking water, to promote income-generating activities as alternatives to the overexploitation of natural resources. MFC Nyetaa supports and offers innovative solutions for integrated and sustainable management of natural resources based on the commitment and assumption of responsibilities of local communities, the strengthening of their capacities, the promotion of Public Private Partnership (PPP) projects and the implementation in place of a sustainable local financing mechanism.
