Brussels Briefing 54: Modibo Traoré ''Successes in SDGs implementation: the case of Mali''

  1. 1. 54th BRUSSELS BRIEFING ON SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT Brussels , 27th February 2019
  2. 2. 1. 1. General background in Mali 2. Current status of rollout of SDG 2 and 17 in Mali 2. 3. 1. Significant interactions with other SDGs; 2. Grouping of thematic outcomes as the basis for joint intersectoral programming; 3. Coordination between sub-sectors to create synergies. 4. 5.
  3. 3. 1. INTRODUCTION Demographics: Pop: 18.9 million in 2017 Surface Area: 1,241,238 Km² Development indicators: GDP: 5.8% in 2016 Avg income: $660 % poverty: 46.8 HDI 2015: 0.442 (175/ 188 listed
  4. 4. 2. Current Status Economy dominated by agriculture (traditional family farms; low usage of modern agricultural inputs; poor water management); Increasing prevalence of hunger and malnutrition; Multitude of policy documents and operational responses; Strong political engagement (Maputo) but weaknesses in institutions and sectoral governance; Challenges mobilising financial resources (private sector). SDG 2
  5. 5. 2. Current Status (cont) Landlocked Sahelian country, member of the LDC and LLDC; Average level of economic development (<6%) strongly linked to climatic variability; Strong demographic growth (3.6% pa); Increased vulnerability due to continuation of 2012 politico-security crisis (armed seperatist groups and violent extremist groups); Strong dependance on developmental cooperation (ODA, regional integration, international partners, trade, FDI). SDG 17
  6. 6. 2. The Malian approach to implementing SDGs ▸Each objective is independently a concentration of sustainable development challenges; a sectoral approach is therefore not an option to implement apparently isolated objectives, which are, in fact, interdependent. ▸The combination of intervention programmes for each objective will not deliver the synergies expected from implementing SDGs; ▸Organising the involved parties by thematic groups is the only solution to enable operational coordination and the development and implementation of linked programmes.
