Conflict in Mali since 2012
Alert level increased from green to orange in Matam Region (where is located one of the two villages involved in the project – Gouriki Samba Diom). Aid-worker and project central office relocation fromOurossogui (Matam Region) to Dakaraccording to the suggestionscontainedin the 4th March 2013 Italianembassy’snote. Increased difficulties about remote project supervision because of expatriate aid-worker absence on the ground. Difficulties about daily involvement of Gouriki Samba Diom beneficiaries and about yard supervision.
Local technical staff and animation strengthening in orange area to ensure a good project activities supervision. Beneficiaries involvement strengthening thanks toVillage Management Committee. Monthly missions of the aid-worker moving from Dakar for implementation supervision.
