Target group 245,000 agro-pastoralists in Mali
This project will provide an information service to pastoralists. The information service will provide pastoralists with instant access to reliable information on biomass availability and quality, surface water availability, herd concentration and market prices for livestock and staple grains along the points of their different transhumance routes. The services are offered over simple mobile phones to subscribers against a modest fee.
Project runs from November 2015 to November 2018, after which it will continue as commercial service.
Supported financially by the G4AW programme of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands
