The Global Water Initiative (GWI) was an action-research and advocacy programme that ran from 2008-17. The project is now closed. This site is no longer being updated, but allows access to GWI outputs until 1 October 2020 when it will also close. After that date, information about the project and core GWI technical publications will continue to be available from the IIED website and Publications Library.
Food security: What challenges for small producers in large-scale irrigation around dams in Mali?
This is a report of the national workshop on "Food security: What challenges for small producers in the large-scale irrigation around dams in Mali?", organised by GWI and the dam management agency for Sélingué dam (ODRS) in December 2013 in Bamako, Mali.
This workshop followed a regional workshop on the same topic held in Ouagadougou in July 2013, which helped to consolidate the messages from three case studies in Burkina Faso (Bagré dam), Mali (Sélingué dam) and Senegal (Niandouba dam).
