HIGHLIGHTS/KEY PRIORITIES

The complex emergency in Mali has displaced 412,401 people from their homes since fighting erupted in the north of the country. Of these 203,8431 are internally displaced in Mali and 208,5582 are refugees in neighbouring countries.

An estimated 4.6 million people are at risk of food insecurity due to the food and nutrition crises and conflict in northern Mali.

Access to education remains a major challenge for thousands of children in the North.

Funding remains insufficient with only 48 per cent of funding requirements covered under the CAP 2012. US$ 110.5 million is still required to meet the urgent needs identified in the 2012 Mali CAP.
