Inclusion of women and youth in planning and local governance through ICTs

Mali is faces with a fragile national context that undermines the functioning of the Rule of Law and makes it difficult to exercise active citizenship. 

The social fabric, intra-community and inter-generational relations are weakening and the relations with representatives of local authorities are deteriorating. 

Furthermore, women are often excluded from local decision-making processes, having a negative impact on the communities’ sustainable human development (e.g. increasing socio-economic disparities and a feminisation of poverty). 

Finally, elected women in the Keyes region struggle to assert women’s rights and promote equal opportunities in local planning and governance.
