Bamako - The Ministry of Economy, Finance and Budget of the Republic of Mali and UNDP signed the Memorandum of Agreement for a new National Fund. The Fund entitled “Fonds National de Stabilisation Economique et Sociale du Mali” will directly support Government stabilization priority activities for an initial duration of 2 years. The main objective of the Fund is to prevent further socio-economic degradation in Mali as a result of the current crisis and the major budgetary deficit. The Fund will mainly support the Health, Education, Water and Sanitation, Agriculture, Energy and Elections sectors. The UNDP Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office will provide fund administration, management and other support services related to the establishment and management of the National Fund.
