Rural development

Despite reductions in the national poverty rate and incidence of hunger over the last decade, Mali remains one of the poorest countries in the world. It is still heavily reliant on agriculture. Food insecurity is aggravated by high food and fuel prices as well as environmental risks and climatic shocks, such as drought, flooding, irregular rainfall patterns and locust invasions.
