Small-scale irrigation projects in Mali continue during the Covid-19 crisis : IPRODI helps prevent the spread of the virus in northern Mali

The IPRODI project / Programme Mali-Nord, financed by KfW, is continuing its activities in the field while respecting the instructions on precautionary measures issued by the Malian authorities. To help prevent the spread of the virus in the project area (Timbuktu and Mopti regions) in the Inner Delta, the project will strengthen its hygienic and sanitary awareness activities and distribute sanitary equipment. Starting next week, about twenty agents will distribute approx. thirty washing stations, including soap and information flyers, to the project's local partners, i.e. the regional directorates.

In addition, 150 communities where irrigation schemes were established in 2019 and 2020 will receive a kit consisting of soap and flyers.
