Local institutions, external interventions, and adaptations to climate variability: the case of southern Mali

Source(s):  Oxfam - America

This research examines the role of local institutions in mediating the adaptive practices developed by individuals and collectives in the cotton-growing region of Mali. It states that in this area, the main climate risk is erratic and inadequate rainfall, compounded by difficulties related to guaranteeing a sufficient income from cotton and cereal farming from increasingly infertile soils.

The following key questions guided the fieldwork: (i) What role do local social institutions have in long-term adaptation to environmental change?; (ii) How have extra-local actors interacted with local social institutions in development and adaptation efforts?; and (iii) How is the production and use of weather and climate information organized?
