More than six months of economic sanctions have seriously affected the livelihoods of the country’s population. The Centre and North regions are the worst hit.
The security situation has severely deteriorated, resulting in population displacements, livestock theft, limited access to certain agricultural sites and the destruction of crops in certain areas. High food prices, combined with the country’s already fragile economic structure, have made access to essential goods even more difficult.

SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL continued to provide emergency humanitarian assistance for populations displaced by the security crisis in the Ségou and Tomboctou regions, using the rapid response mechanism.
Our NGO also extended its humanitarian activities to other areas of the country, by setting up operations in the Mopti region. We opened a base there to help improve access to water for local populations.
Despite increasingly restricted humanitarian access, our teams also took steps to improve access to essential goods and services and implemented innovative, structural projects to help affected populations recover their livelihoods.
