QIPs Examples

MINUSMA and its partners implement several QIPs projects in the 4 northern regions and in Bamako. These projects have led to equipping public services, improving water access and protecting the environment, carrying out sanitation works or improving electricity distribution networks. Some consist of basic infrastructures’ rehabilitation and construction (town halls, courts, prisons, commissariats, roads, schools, health centres…). Others support direct income generation activities in favour of most vulnerable categories (women, minorities, displaced…). In compliance with the Mission’s mandate, some QIPs contribute to the protection of Malian cultural heritage.

Under the coordination of the Stabilization & Recovery Section, several Mission’s components participate in the implementation of the projects in partnership with every QIP project holder (NGOs, community organizations, international agencies, public partners…). Of these components: Civil Affairs Division, Justice & Corrections Division, Human Rights Division, United Nations Police (UNPOL), military contingents, Public Information Office, Environment & Culture Unit…
