Political instability and internal armed conflict have aggravated Mali’s precarious humanitarian situation, characterised by mass displacement, latent food insecurity and malnutrition, coupled with unpredictable weather conditions. Within the framework of its partnership with the Global Shelter Cluster, a REACH team was deployed to Mali in November 2012 to provide shelter assessments and information management support. The objectives of the deployment were to understand and map displacement trends and assess the needs of internally displaced people. Later REACH participated in the mapping of basic services in northern Mali, implemented a floods analysis as well as conducted a rapid needs assessment in Timbuktu and Gao regions.
