Canada’s contribution to the Trust Fund aims to support the implementation of the peace agreement and the restoration of state authority in northern Mali. It also aims to strengthen social cohesion with the goal of reducing inter and intra community tensions, improving the protection of civilians and contributing to security in northern and central Mali. The Trust Fund for Peace and Security in Mali provides support to Malian-led efforts to resolve the crisis and supports the implementation of the Algiers Peace Process signed in July 2015 by the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA). Progress in implementing the key provisions of the Algiers Agreement has been slow, in particular due to ongoing insecurity and armed resistance. The ongoing instability in Mali has significant impacts on the entire Sahel region.

Expected results 

The project’s expected outcomes include the following: (1) ensuring that constitutional order is restored by the organization of peaceful, legitimate and inclusive legislative and presidential elections in 2022; (2) providing technical support and capacity building to Mali’s institutions in critical areas, such as the rule of law, mine action, the promotion of national dialogue, regional cooperation, reform of the security sector, human rights and initial demobilization, disarmament and reintegration of former combatants; (3) supporting the international community’s immediate and long term efforts to resolve the crisis in Mali, encompassing issues of security, development and humanitarian assistance.
