Mali: Floods - Jul 2016
In Mali, heavy rainfall, which started on 11 July 2016-23 July 2016 led to extensive flooding. The Gao, Mopti Ségou, and Sikasso regions have been worst affected by the rains and flooding. According to rapid assessments, an estimated 3,098 families have been affected, of which 500 have been made homeless and have sought refuge with neighbouring families or in public buildings (schools). (IFRC, 05 August 2016)
According to Mali's authorities, at least 12 people were killed and almost 10,000 left temporarily homeless. Over 27,000 people have received support through the national relief coordination committee (CONASUR), principally in the Centre-Nord and eastern regions. A preparedness plan to cover over 50,000 people has been prepared. (OCHA, 22 August 2016)
In September the National Red Cross distributed food and non-food items to 435 people in Bankass, Mopti region. (Croix-Rouge Malienne, 13 Oct 2016)
The waters of the Niger River reached their highest level in October with a rise in the water level of 657 cm observed in Mopti, according to the OPIDIN, the tool for flood forecasting in the Inner Niger Delta. The water level has begun to decrease. However, the OPIDIN indicates that the flood will continue downstream of Mopti, with a peak of 517 cm expected in Diré, region of Timbuktu, between 3 and 11 December. This year, heavy rains in the country have killed fifteen people, affected at least 18,000 people and flooded 200 hectares of cultivated farms. (OCHA, 10 Dec 2016)
This report examines three examples of crisis modifiers, a set of innovative risk financing options, in the Sahel and examines their use as a potential solution for a more flexible aid system. This could address the gap created by the traditional division between humanitarian aid and long-term development, in which pre-planned development programmes do not have the flexibility to quickly reallocate funding to address spikes in need, and humanitarian organisations are largely confined to funding instruments that prevent longer-term engagement in vulnerability reduction.

Nouveau record en vue: 2016 devrait être encore plus chaude que 2015
Tout semble indiquer que 2016 sera l’année la plus chaude qui ait été observée depuis le début des relevés et que la température moyenne sera même supérieure au record établi en 2015. Selon les données provisoires dont dispose l’Organisation météorologique mondiale (OMM), la température moyenne en 2016 devrait être supérieure d’environ 1,2 °Celsius à ce qu’elle était à l’époque préindustrielle.
2016 is set to break even the temperature records of 2015.
It is very likely that 2016 will be the hottest year on record, with global temperatures even higher than the record-breaking temperatures in 2015. Preliminary data shows that 2016’s global temperatures are approximately 1.2° Celsius above pre-industrial levels, according to an assessment by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

WFP assisted 231,000 vulnerable people with food, cash and vouchers to alleviate food insecurity brought by the lean season (June-September).
WFP Mali urgently needs resources to continue its school meals program. If funding is not urgently secured, school children in 965 schools throughout the country, including Kidal, are at risk and will not receive school meals during the new school year.
Harvests are in progress throughout the region and an above-average production is expected
From early July until early October, the West Africa region has mostly received average to above-average rains that are well-distributed (Figures 1 and 2); the resulting adequate moisture conditions have met the various crops’ water requirements throughout the growing period.
