Twelve months after French forces drove Islamic militants from northern Mali, a conference of international donors in Brussels has heard of progress, of socio-economic recovery, and reforms via decentralisation. Achievements include free elections, as well as ongoing efforts to combat corruption, improve the business climate, to promote a neutral and efficient justice system, and national reconciliation.
When natural or man-made disasters occur, humanitarian actors need timely and accurate information to plan their course of action. Data, however, isn’t always easy to come by.
