Much of central Mali has been without a government presence since Mali was destabilised in 2012. This has encouraged armed criminal groups to settle in the area and rob local populations of their assets and livestock as well as the development of conflict in early 2019. It is wonderful news that local communities have initiatiated their own peace agreements which have allowed displaced people to return to the area. Even armed criminal groups have been invited to 'round tables' and agreed to cease their activities.
