Northern Mali: inclusive development in a fragile context

Building community resilience: boosting the local economy, recovering basic services and supporting local authorities

Because of the security crisis affecting northern Mali, it is essential to improve social cohesion and strengthen local governance in order to prevent new conflicts. Increased stability is a condition for economic and social development. The RELAC (Recovery of the Local Economy and Communities Support) project, implemented by LuxDev and funded by the EU, enables the communities and municipalities of Timbuktu and Gao regions to develop their economy, provide local employment opportunities and ensure the proper functioning of basic social services (schools, health centres, water points).
