Satellite imagery analysis 2022 - MALI

The analysis conducted in November 2022 for Mali also included an estimation of the population affected by
cropland decrease in Mopti and Segou regions (note that other regions were not included due to the lack of
disaggregated population data at the time of the analysis). The analysis, which takes into account the
reliance on agricultural activities at the household level, suggests that the areas most affected by medium to
significant cropland decreases in terms of population are Mopti region, especially Bankass (20% of the
population affected), Koro (7%) and Djenne (2%). For Ségou region, the most affected districts are Niono
(9%), and Macina (2%). In absolute terms, around 183,000 people representing 4% of the total population
of Mopti and 3% of Ségou, are estimated to be impacted by medium to significant cropland loss in
2022. This represents a slight decrease compared to the results of the analysis conducted in November
2021, which concluded that nearly 254,000 people were impacted by medium to severe cropland losses in the
two regions. The situation appears to have remained stable in some areas such as Bankass (Mopti region).
An improvement compared to last year was observed in Djenne (11% to 2%) and Koro (18% to 7%) districts of
Mopti region. However, a slight deterioration was noted in parts of Ségou, including Niono (3% to 9% of
the population affected).
