Since 2018, the European Union-funded project ‘Central Mali for Security and Development’ has monitored the Central Mali population’s perceptions on security, governance and socio-economic development.
A quantitative panel survey is conducted every three months across 1800 households in the 15 cercles in Mali’s central regions. SIPRI partners with Point Sud on this project. Research findings are triangulated by qualitative research and focus groups discussions to provide operative analysis at all levels, from the local level to national and international stakeholders. This infographic summary reports on the survey of the perception of security among the population in the Bandiagara, Douentza, Mopti, San and Ségou regions conducted 25 October–9 November 2021.
