Global Health Initiative in Mali

English

Like much of the Sahel, Mali is subject to frequent droughts and experiences a significant variability in annual rainfall. Climate change is expected to increase local temperatures, the variability of rainfall, and the magnitude of extreme weather events. With more than 80 percent of Mali’s population dependent on agriculture for their livelihood, which is predominantly rainfed, they are extremely vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
