Through a partnership between the National Observatory for Human Development in Morocco and the National Observatory of Sustainable Human Development and the Poverty Alleviation of Mali, a series of exchanges and capacities building activities have taken place between the two institutions.
Under the supervision of the Ministry of Social Development, Solidarity and the Elderly (MDSSPA), the main mission of the National Observatory of Sustainable Human Development and the Poverty Alleviation of Mali (ODHD/LCP) is to undertake studies and research in the fields of sustainable human development and the fight against poverty. The solution seeks to address the information system and the capabilities of analysis and evaluation of public policies’ to improve decision-making and ultimately, good governance. Specifically, it aims at consolidating a culture of public policy, performance measurement, as well as transparency and accountability.
In June 2014, the ODHD/LCP of Mali participated at the International conference on methods for measuring human development and equity-oriented assessment approaches. The Director of the ODHD presented the process of elaboration of the poverty index of the communes of Mali.
A partnership agreement was concluded between observatories in Morocco and Mali.
As part of this South-South partnership, the National Observatory for Human Development of Morocco (ONDH) received a Malian delegation composed of senior officials of the Government of Mali and experts in August 2017. Following several participations of Mali in the forums and seminars organized by the ONDH, the National Observatory of Sustainable Human Development and the Poverty Alleviation of Mali (ODHD/LCP) requested the support of the ONDH to strengthen its capacities in two areas: Information System and Human Development Expertise.
