The goal of the programme was to reduce the incidence of poverty among 72,000 rural households in the Sahelian zone (in the four regions of Kayes, Koulikoro, Ségou and Mopti) through better incomes and living conditions. To this end, the programme helped village communities in these areas to assess needs and identify micro-projects to which they would have contribute to in cash or in kind. With regard to land and natural resource governance, the programme has provided support for the formalisation of land transaction and schemes to negotiate and formalize collective rights to land and water. The programme created informal land property rights used to ensure access to land and water in rural areas, where property titles are virtually non-existent. To secure the long-term individual land rights of vulnerable groups, particularly women and young people, the programme supported the Land Use Plan to negotiate and formalize rights on water and land.
