A Multidisciplinary Consultative and Need Assessment Mission from the Department of Political Affairs, Peace and Security of the African Union Commission, in collaboration with the AU Mission in Mali and the Sahel (MISHAEL), is currently in Bamako, Mali, as part of the African Union support programme to countries in transition.

Upon arrival in Bamako, the Mission has been engaging in consultations with the Authorities of the Transition and key Malian stakeholders, to ascertain a consensus on the nature of AU support to the Government Action Plan for 2021-2022, the Transition calendar, which are all fundamental milestones in ensuring the continuation of sustainable and broad peace-building efforts in the country. 

The Mission has met with officials from the Malian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the National Transitional Council, Political and Religious leaders, as well strategic international partners such as MINUSMA, with the aim of working towards the development of a Comprehensive Support Programme and Implementation Plan for the country in key areas such as Dialogue and mediation, Elections, Constitution Building, Transitional Justice, Disarmament Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR), Decentralization and, Governance and the Rule of Law.

The Mission expects to also meet with other strategic actors, such as the Election Management Body, the Constitutional Court, Local Government representatives and Transitional Justice actors. The principal goals of the Mission will include direct technical support to Malian institutions, the deployment of technical experts to support the overall transition process and to ensure the return to civilian-led government in Mali.
