Environment monitoring in Mali conflict areas

North and Central Mali entail the country’s highest prevalence of vulnerable communes siting at the intersection of chronic vulnerability, food insecurity, and armed conflict. Humanitarian and development programs are faced with diverse challenges in the aim of tackling the root causes and impacts of these vulnerabilities on local populations. Douentza, Koro, Gourma-Rharous, and Ansongo in the Mopti, Tombouctou, and Gao regions are characterized by being hard-to-reach, insecure and challenging to operate in for humanitarian/development projects/programs and demands a strong understanding of the potential impact of conflict.
