MINUSMA Supports Community Farming Through Quick Impact Project
The United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA), through a Quick Impact Project, supports community farming in Gao, Mali.
The agricultural project seeks to improve conditions in the community and to meet the needs of local farmers while promoting youth employment and providing livelihood skills in an effort to curb the high rate of youth departure from Gao to other locations.
In addition to vegetable farming and raising poultry, the local community has plans to expand livestock farming to cows and other small ruminants, and to incorporate a fish farm.
