Support to the Integrated and Sustainable Development Program of Sourou for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Bamako

The Embassy has entrusted ACT for Performance with the management of a €21 million investment fund in the field of Integrated Water and Natural Resource Management, Food Security, and Climate Change Adaptation for a period of 5 years. As Mali is a focus region for Dutch development cooperation, the Embassy has asked ACT to support Malian communities in the Mopti region (26 communes and three cercles) in governance and capacity building. ACT will work with the Inter Collectivité de Sourou (ICS) to select and oversee the management of a dozen projects through calls for proposals in the water, food security, environment and climate sectors. The Sourou River, which flows through Mali and Burkina Faso, is one of the largest bodies of water in the West African region.
