Mali - Fostering Agricultural Productivity Project : environmental social management plan (Vol. 3) : Plan de gestion des pestes et des psticides (PGPP) (French)

The Agricultural Productivity Development Program in Mali (PAPAM) will contribute to Mali food security and specific objectives for agricultural growth. The Project's development goal stresses farming activity productivity increases within production systems and targeted geographic areas. To reach this goal, the operation tackles the modernization of family farm agriculture by: (i) investing in adapted infrastructure and equipment (particularly large or small scale irrigation); (ii) enhancing agriculture services (research, training, counseling, funding, equipment supply, etc.), and (iii) setting an appropriate political and institutional environment to help enhance the handling of sub-sector policy issues. PAPAM aims at increasing agricultural productivity. The Project may have some environmental risks that can be clearly identified, mainly those related to the intensification of farming activities, irrigation, and water use, along with post harvest operations linked to storage and product processing. The environmental management framework includes identification of risks linked with different project activities, within targeted production systems, and mitigation measures to be implemented during project execution. The Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF) is designed to help define the project's environmental and social impacts. It broadly outlines assessment of environmental and social impacts for future project activities and specific components; it also helps to define the assessment criteria for Project, along with mitigation or compensation measures. Negative effects on human environment are: population displacement; increased risks in handling phytosanitary products(e.g. careless handling of products that threatens human health and environment); conflicts related to land use rights (including the coexistence of different types of land rights, complaint procedures in respective villages); potential conflicts between agriculture and livestock farming; increased migration; increases in farm settlements and other human settlements; water-borne sicknesses (e.g. an increase in the prevalence of malaria; an increase in dysentery cases, bilharzias, etc.); project misappropriation risks (e.g. communities or entities unexpectedly inheriting the project because of management difficulties); health and safety risks in pesticides management (cattle contamination through the water supply; contamination of products, etc. due to poor management; bad packaging, etc.); health and safety risks due to inappropriate use of machinery; degradation or drying up of water sources; conflicts caused by land or water use and possible cumulative effects of redistribution; unequal access to land or water rights (notably, for women); and, difficulties in integrating women into farming activities.
