Analyse: Le problème de l'aide au Mali

Report
IRIN

BAMAKO, 7 août 2013 (IRIN) - Outre les ralentisseurs et les postes de contrôles où les commerçants locaux se pressent autour des véhicules qui s'attardent, il existe peu d'infrastructures visibles sur les 635 km de route séparant Bamako, la capitale du Mali, de la ville de Mopti, dans le centre du pays. La brousse est parsemée de panneaux rongés par la rouille et de bannières aux couleurs passées de bailleurs de fonds internationaux annonçant des projets de développement abandonnés depuis longtemps ou jamais entrepris.

Analysis: Mali’s aid problem

Report
IRIN

BAMAKO, 5 August 2013 (IRIN) - There is little discernible economic infrastructure on the 635km drive from Mali's capital, Bamako, to the central town of Mopti, except for speed bumps and checkpoints where local vendors congregate to target vehicles as they slow. Rusted signs and faded banners from international donors dot the scrubland, advertising development projects either long abandoned or never undertaken.

The Economics of Early Response and Resilience in Niger

Environmental degradation and extreme poverty have combined to make Niger - a landlocked nation of 17m of the arid West African Sahel - one of the world’s most vulnerable countries. In any given year, 20% of rural households are food insecure, while more than 10% of children under 5 are acutely malnourished. In recent decades, drought has occured every third year in Niger; such events inflict large economic losses, while requiring substantial volumes of food and nutrition assistance.

Finance for emergency preparedness: links to resilience

The rising cost of humanitarian response, combined with repeated action and investment in a small number of targeted countries has led to renewed calls to change the way we address recurrent crises. In 2010, the amount of funding for emergency response was the highest on record, at $12.4 billion, and the joint agencies’ Consolidated Appeal Process stood at $11.2 billion (it’s highest figure ever, and double that of 2006) (Kellett and Sweeney, 2011: 63).
