Mali: Mali Response Overview – December 2019

Source: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations Country: Mali
Key points • The conflict and its impact on communities have become the main driver of food insecurity in northern and central Mali.
The regions of Gao, Ménaka, Mopti, Segou and Timbuktu are experiencing increased levels of violent incidents, attacks by armed groups and inter-community conflict, leading to regular forced population movements. As a result, the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the country has increased fivefold since January 2017. • While Mali experienced generally favourable harvests, this was not the case in certain areas such as western Sahel, and northern and central parts of the country that were affected by inadequate rainfall and/or insecurity. Pasture deficits in western Sahel were also observed along with the disruptions to movement in conflict-affected areas, which are likely to negatively impact livestock feeding conditions and pastoral households’ incomes. • The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has activated a corporate scale-up to respond to the deteriorating situation and growing needs in the country. Planned response by January–December 2020 500 000 people targeted
