In Mali, the key drivers of disaster risk are recurrent hazards like droughts, floods, epidemics and locust infestation, increasing poverty, market instability, massive population displacement caused by conflict and socio-political factors. In 2013, 3.3 million people were at risk of food insecurity and 35.000 people were affected by floods. Sahelian landlocked Mali is highly vulnerable to climate change and an increase in local temperatures, the variability of rainfall, and the magnitude of extreme weather events is projected.
In 2011, at the government request, the CADRI Partnership facilitated a national DRR capacity assessment exercise with a strong emphasis on preparedness for emergency response and institutional arrangements. Due to the political events of March 2012, the capacity assessment process was only concluded in September 2015 with the validation of the report.
