Mali is three and a half times larger than Germany, approximately 60% of which surface is covered by desert. Most Malians live in the country’s fertile south. In its north, Islamist militias regularly attempt to take control, most recently in 2013. Of the approximately 500,000 Malians who fled at the time, some 200,000 have returned to their homes. The rest are currently still refugees and dependent on aid, 90,000 of them in their own country. Mali’s economic development has been stable since the food shortages during the year of the civil war, but is facing challenges due to a high rate of population growth of approximately 3% annually. Welthungerhilfe has been active in Mali since the 1960s.
