A step towards more stability in cental Mali

23 September 2019

Bamako, September 2019 - The signing of the environmental permit in June and thereby approving the SEA for the development plan of the Sourou region, marked an important step in decentralised planning. This was concluded at a recent evaluation meeting attended by the NCEA. The stakeholders in the Sourou area and the ministries involved in Bamako - especially those for environment and decentralisation - named this the first successful case. After a lengthy process of discussions, trust and commitment is seen as a step towards more stability in central Mali.
