Sahel Eco has been operating in Mali since 2004. It emerged from the transformation of the SOS Sahel UK Programme whose intervention in Mali dates back to 1989. It has expertise in sustainable management of natural resources and diversification of rural economic development; strengthening of community based farmer organizations; water sanitation and hygiene (WASH); and climate change adaptation. As Mali’s NLO, Sahel Eco will be overall responsible for DRYDEV’s successful implementation in Mali and will sub‐grant to the other participating implementing partners (IPs). In will also lead the implementation of work packages (WPs) 1‐3 in five targeted sub‐catchments (Bara Sara, Ségué, Kani‐ Bonzon, Soroly and Diallassagou) in the districts of Bankass and Bandiagara in the region of Mopti. It will furthermore spearhead the implementation of WPs 7‐8 in all the three regions DRYDEV is being implemented (Sikasso, Segou, and Mopti), as well as at the national level.
