Implementation of New Policy for Agriculture Development in Mali

27 Jan 2014
A MAFAP expert from FAO Rome undertook a mission in Mali from the 21st to the 24th of January.

The aim of the mission was to carry out technical work with the longstanding MAFAP team of the Institut d’Economie Rurale (IER), Mali’s leading research institute on agriculture and MAFAP partner since 2010 and to meet with IER’s Assistant Director General.

Together with MAFAP members from IER, the MAFAP expert met with donors including the Dutch Embassy, USAID and the European Union Delegation, with whom MAFAP’s experience and perspectives in Mali were discussed, especially with regards to the implementation of the new Policy for Agriculture Development. FAO country office was also present in all meetings.
