The in-depth case study of Mali analyses the experiences of the social protection, humanitarian assistance and disaster risk management sectors in coming together in recent years to try to reduce reliance on annual humanitarian interventions as a response to large-scale food insecurity in the country and to strengthen the use of social protection interventions to respond to covariate shocks.
The study focuses particularly on activities undertaken since the sociopolitical conflict of 2012, and also takes into account the effect of that conflict on policy design and implementation.
