Informations importantes

The Sourou area in Mali, bordering Burkina Faso with which it shares the Sourou river, has complex challenges of employment, land degradation, climate change, water management, land management, conflict and migration. In June 2017, actors from the area were invited by IUCN and NCEA to a landscape and SEA approach training in Burkina Faso. Later these actors requested the NCEA to do a similar training in Mopti, capital of the Malinese province where also the Sourou area is located. The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Bamako facilitated a series of trainings done by NCEA with the aim to look for joint, SEA-informed, action for the Sourou. An NCEA advice on this process to the parties was published on 16 May 2018 ("Etat des lieux"). The local governments of the Sourou area erected an "inter collectivité" (a formal collaborative body) as competent authority for a plan for sustainable development of the Sourou region, and to do an SEA to inform the plan. The governor of the Mopti region, who had approved the "inter-collectivité du Sourou", requested the NCEA to support the further SEA process. The SEA procedure started in September 2018. NCEA published a scoping advice in december 2018 (Avis de cadrage). After that, it coached the steering committee of the plan in making informed decisions.
