Mali: A New Development Contract: What kind of aid is needed to end the crisis?

Mali is rich in mineral resources such as gold yet one Malian in five lives in extreme poverty. The 2012 conflict has not arranged the situation concerning well-being and human rights;communities became more vulnerable, particularly in the North. With the threat of a food crisis looming ahead in the near future and a weakened central authority, this Oxfam briefing calls for a new development contract that will foster transparency and accountability between the Malian government and its citizens. Including the citizens in the decision-making process ought to be done, according to the report.

Furthermore, donors could play an important role in this process by committing themselves to this country's stability and its citizen's well-being. This commitment could have a positive impact on good governance and transparency and by assessing their aid programs in the last twenty years, donors could determine how to help Mali build lasting peace and corruption-free country instead of fuelling conflict.

The Donor Conference in Brussels on 15 May 2013 is thus viewed as an opportunity to set in motion a new development contract for Mali.
