GCOZA (Le Groupe de Coordination des Zones Arides) grew from the Drylands Coordination Group founded in Mali in 1999 by the Norwegian NGOs working in Mali (CARE, Norwegian Church Aid, and the Strømme Foundation). In 2003 DCG Mali enlarged its membership to include more than 20 national NGOs, State institutes, and agricultural research institutes. GCOZA is currently a 100% Malian organisation.


GCOZA Mali is a network composed of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), research institutions and governmental institutions focusing on improving living conditions in arid and semi-arid areas in Mali. GCOZA provides a framework for exchange, representation, reflection and action and promotes the development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of food security and natural resource management policies.
