Groupe d'Appui à la Modernisation de l'Agriculture

The Action Group for Modernisation of Agriculture (GAMA), in Southern Mali aims to improve farming stability in the face of increasing vulnerability of crop production due to climate change. A key piece of their strategy is to use renewable energy source for drying, processing and storage technologies for mangoes, potatoes and gombo. Used at sufficient scale, these technologies increase shelf life and availability of the product to the market, thereby increasing resilience to change and food security. The project has considerable potential to attract private sector financing, but the upfront investment constitutes the main obstacle, and investors are not convinced of its bankability.
