Project General Description

The project to support the socio-economic reintegration of the populations of Northern Mali (PARSEP-NM) is a contribution of the Bank to promote a gradual return to stability. This operation, which will last four (4) years, will consolidate the results obtained from emergency operations initiated since 2012. Indeed, since 2012, Mali has experienced a succession of crises (security, political and institutional) that have destabilized the country in all areas, led to a profound dysfunction of public administration and accentuated regional disparities. In the context of post-crisis reconstruction, the Government has made the development of the northen regions affected by the crisis, an important dimension of its strategy to bring peace and stability to Mali. This support is part of the implementation of the Algiers Peace Agreement (signed in 2015) and is justified by the need to tackle triggers of fragility through the reduction of inequalities. The proposed intervention through this support aims to: (i) respond quickly to the urgent needs of vulnerable returnees or stayees; ii) restore livelihoods and resilience capacities of crisis affected populations and; (iii) avoid destabilizing factors during the interim period.

Project Objectives

The main objective of the project is to support the Malian Government to restore the functioning of services, promote the refugee populations' return, and consolidate the foundations for the development of Mali's northern region. In more specifics, the project aims to support: (i) the socio-economic reintegration of northern and center region's populations through the restoration of basic social services; (ii) capacity building and revitalization of socio-economic activities.

Beneficiaries

The main beneficiaries of the project, estimated at 635,000 persons, are located in the 27 targeted communes. These are populations in conditions of advanced vulnerability in the northern regions (Kidal, Gao, Timbuktu, Ménaka and Taoudéni) as well as in two regions of the Center (Mopti and Segou), particularly women, youths, internally displaced persons, returning refugees and vulnerable local populations.
