  • OAG actors have increasingly targeted civilians in conflict-affected areas of Mali in recent months, driving a nearly 20 percent increase in Mali’s internally displaced population since December 2020.

  • Protracted insecurity and resultant displacement—compounded by the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and localized flooding—continue to drive acute food insecurity and increasing rates of wasting in Mali.

  • OAG use of IEDs in the tri-border region is endangering civilians, damaging critical infrastructure, restricting humanitarian access, and preventing affected populations from accessing essential services.
