Mali civil society and peacebuilding
|The lack of peace and security in Mali is a major obstacle to economic, social and human development, and any development cooperation strategy for Mali must take into account the interconnections between peace, security and development. A genuine and sustainable peace requires the involvement of local populations and, by extension, the full participation of civil society.
This project aims to strengthen and tailor contributions of civil society actors participating in this project to enhance public awareness and to influence national and local decision-making of relevance for improving the safety and security of the population.
