Land and water management practices like contour bunding have been implemented by farmers for some time in southern Mali. Farmers use these practices to improve yield performance and increase household income. Datasets on the social, livelihood, and economic benefits of contour bunding technology (CBT) will help to make firm conclusions and recommendations regarding CBT applications in different agroecologies of southern Mali. As part of Africa RISING activities, a survey on CBT was conducted in Africa RISING intervention villages (Bougouni and Koutiala) to facilitate decisions regarding the use and scaling of CBT.
