Safe, reliable transportation to the most remote regions of Northern Mali

In Mali, even at the best of times, poor infrastructure and washed out roads in the rainy season make access to remote communities a constant challenge for humanitarian workers. Add to that the ongoing security concerns of the past two years, including frequent rocket-fire in the North and IED (improvised explosive device) explosions on roads, and humanitarian access can become very difficult.

Overview

Mali is currently experiencing a sustained but fragile recovery from the series of shocks that occurred over the past three years - a pastoral crisis in 2010, a drought in 2011 and the political and security crisis in 2012 and 2013. 

According to a March 2014 analysis, at that time, more than 1.5 million people were currently in food insecurity in Mali. During the lean season (June through October), this number is expected to increase to 1.9 million people— meaning that 40% of people in the North of the country will have trouble finding their next meal.
