This project seeks to contribute to the implementation of the Agreement for Peace and Reconciliation in Mali by making the tools for its implementation—Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR), a joint protection force and local police—more participatory, inclusive, and gender and conflict sensitive. The proposed activities aim to meet the needs of local populations in northern regions, Mopti, Kayes and the District of Bamako. This is expected to be accomplished by establishing mechanisms for dialogue and having stakeholders use them to build trust and to support the implementation of joint actions that bring parties together, strengthen social cohesion and prevent violent conflicts.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes of this project include: (1) reduced tensions, especially those affecting women, and prevention of conflicts in the regions of Gao, Timbuktu and Mopti; (2) stronger relationships that improve social cohesion in northern Mali; and (3) enhanced mechanisms and capacity for inclusive and participatory management of security.

Results achieved 

Results achieved as of March 2022 include: (1) consulted 2,690 people (874, or 32% women) during dialogue sessions, workshops, institutional meetings and one-on one meetings; and (2) 54 women implemented 14 community peace initiatives in the Gao, Kayes, Mopti and Tombouctou regions.
