Boosting environmental education in primary schools in Mali
- Impact Area
Environmental degradation and climate change are major concerns for all countries in the world. The damage is increasing year after year despite all the engagement and goodwill in conservation and restoration. African countries are not spared from the disastrous impact of these factors, which is becoming more acute, particularly, in the Sahel region.
The Government of Mali is facing both urban and rural environmental challenges despite their adherence to international conventions and agreements related to protection of the environment. To further mobilize the nation, legislation and regulations have been established to encourage the education community to serve as an important vehicle for conservation and restoration.
