Project to Restore State Authority and Access to Justice in Mali
This initiative supports the return of the essential functions of the Malian state to the northern and central regions through support for the redeployment of administrative services, magistrates and security forces. 146 buildings of state structures, such as the Territorial Administration, Local Authorities and judicial services, have been rehabilitated and equipped. The quality of the rehabilitated or built infrastructure has been a distinctive factor in the reaffirmed presence of the State thanks to qualified technical staff and regular and close monitoring of rehabilitation and construction works. By favouring paid high labour intensive work, the project has also fostered the conditions necessary for the revitalisation of the local economy.
185 civil servants of the State services, including 34 women, were trained. The project also contributed to improving the working conditions of agents through the provision of 200 kits of IT and office automation equipment, as well as basic standard documents and texts.
In addition, in order to restore confidence between public services and citizens by ensuring them a minimum of subsistence income-generating activities, more than 4,000 temporary jobs have been created by 15 local businesses and 9 micro-projects have been carried out for the benefit of 447 households, including 333 female heads of household. Almost 90% of the direct and indirect beneficiaries reported that they were satisfied with the various achievements of the project.
Our building was very small, it could not cover all the needs of our services. We have benefited from an expansion and a conference room, as well as many resources that did not exist before (…) We are very satisfied and we are now operating in conditions which allow us to work better today.
