Significant details

It was assumed that improving food security and employment were key to sustainable development in Mali. This advice was in particular useful for discussions in the Planetary Security Initative, in particular the Planetary Security Conference 2017, and for follow-up in Mali itself. The MFA was the main sponsor of the Planetary Security Inititative, with several conferences at high level aiming to influence the international policy agenda at the nexus of climate change and security (and migration).
