From emergency to development. Reducing vulnerability to food insecurity: the experience of the Mali Red Cross

As part of efforts to combat food insecurity in Mali, four communes in Goundam Circle (M’Bouna, Bintagoungou, Tin-Aïcha and Essakane) were assigned to the Mali Red Cross by the Secretariat for Food Security of the Malian Government. These communes are especially vulnerable because they are situated on the shores of Lake Faguibine, which has almost completely dried up. This resource presents the case study of the intervention made by the Mali Red Cross, with technical backing from the Swiss Red Cross, from September to December 2005. Published in 2008.
