IN RESPECT OF THE MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS, INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION AND AFRICAN INTEGRATION:

On the report of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, International Cooperation and African Integration, the Council of Ministers took note of a written communication relating to the conclusions of the 26th ordinary session of the Conference of Heads of State and Government of the African Union (AU), held on 30 and 31 January 2016 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The 26th Ordinary Summit of the African Union recorded the participation of many Heads of State including that of the President of the Republic Ibrahim Boubacar KEITA, accompanied by a strong delegation.

It examined, among other things, the report of the Peace and Security Council (PSC) on its activities, the situation of peace and security in Africa.

During this summit, the President of the Republic reiterated his firm and total determination to implement the Agreement for Peace and Reconciliation in Mali resulting from the Algiers process and recalled the measures and actions already taken by the Government in this direction.

The 26th ordinary session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union:

- invited the Malian parties to continue their efforts, resolutely and in good faith, with a view to implementing the Agreement for Peace and Reconciliation in Mali resulting from the Algiers process;

- urged the international community to continue and intensify its financial support for ongoing efforts in this direction and strongly condemned the terrorist attacks against Mali;

- reiterated its support for the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MUNISMA) and its troop contributing countries.

During the same session, Mali was elected as the Vice-Chair of the Ad Hoc Ministerial Committee responsible for steering the selection and election process for members of the AU Commission in July 2016.

IN RESPECT OF THE MINISTRY OF ENVIRONMENT, SANITATION AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT:

On the report of the Minister of Environment, Sanitation and Sustainable Development, the Council of Ministers took note of a written communication on the note relating to the completion of the construction of the final compacted landfill and controlled (DCC) of Noumoubougou.

The lack of a final landfill, particularly for the city of Bamako, has led to the proliferation of anarchic transit depots.

The solid waste management strategy for the District of Bamako was adopted by the Council of Ministers on June 25, 2003, with a view to correcting this shortcoming.

It provides for the construction of heavy infrastructure, in particular, controlled compacted landfills.

The construction of the final compacted and controlled landfill (DCC) of Noumoubougou in the Rural Commune of Tienfala has been undertaken in this direction.

The first phase of construction work on the site was carried out between 2005 and 2014 and focused in particular on the construction of a containment cell A for the burial of waste and two (02) basins for storage and evaporation of the leaching water.

This written communication relates to the work to complete the construction of the final compacted and controlled landfill (DCC).

The work concerns, among other things, the commissioning of Cell A and the construction of two other waste containment and burial cells.

It also provides for the extension and improvement of existing basins.

Completion of the completion works will allow waste to be transported to Noumoubougou and the removal of anarchic deposits in Bamako.

It will also make it possible to improve the living environment of the population, to set up a public service for the management and secure treatment of waste and to create jobs through the recovery and recycling of waste.

The cost of carrying out the work to complete the construction of the final compacted and controlled landfill (DCC) in Noumoubougou is estimated at 5 billion 930 million 746 thousand 345 CFA francs.

IN RESPECT OF THE MINISTRY FOR THE PROMOTION OF INVESTMENTS AND THE PRIVATE SECTOR:

On the report of the Minister for the Promotion of Investments and the Private Sector, the Council of Ministers took note of a written communication relating to the National Policy for the Development of Microfinance and its Action Plan (PNDMF /PA) 2016-2025.

Microfinance aims to provide low-income households with permanent access to quality financial services at an affordable cost in order to finance income-generating activities, accumulate assets, stabilize their consumption expenditure and protect them against risks.

The implementation of this financial service in Mali has been the subject of several national strategies, the last of which covered the period 2008-2012.

The evaluation of the institutional framework of the microfinance sector in Mali, in December 2014, revealed:

- the existence of 126 decentralized financial systems and 1,000 listed service points;

- the availability of total assets estimated at more than 103 billion CFA francs;

- the creation of 2,274 direct jobs;

- the existence of equity capital estimated at 17.6 billion.

Despite these remarkable indicators, the microfinance sector in Mali is still confronted with dysfunctions that compromise the viability and financial balance of many decentralized financial systems.

The National Policy for the Development of Microfinance has been initiated with a view to correcting these dysfunctions.

It aims to increase financial inclusion and improve the living conditions of populations.

It is built around the following strategic axes:

- cleaning up and improving supervision of the microfinance sector;

- promote wide and diversified access to financial services and protect the interests of clients;

- improving the environment and capacities of decentralized financial systems;

- strengthen the promotion and supervision of the microfinance sector.

The National Microfinance Development Policy is accompanied by a 2016-2020 action plan, the financial impact of which is estimated at 36 billion 11 million CFA francs.

Its funding will be provided by the State and technical and financial partners.
