UNHCR and Better Shelter
The Sahel region is home to many crises, from food insecurity to environmental issues with severe droughts and floods, as well as political instability across many countries. In Mali, the military coup of March 2012 put to an end 20 years of democracy in the country. In the following years, terrorist groups took control of the northen region of the country and started heading South where their adavance was stopped by military intervention.
A peace and reconciliation agreement was signed in June 2015, however, confrontations between armed groups persisted, making it difficult for Malian to return to their homes.
