This lesson sharing study aims to reinforce future operations and improve vulnerability reduction activities in Mali by identifying good practices and lessons from the experience of the consortiums and meta-consortiums involved in the KEY programme. It is an opportunity to analyse this approach which is becoming more and more common in the humanitarian aid system.

More specifically, it will:

  • Describe the different consortiums that currently exist (typology, composition, decision-making methods, etc.);
  • Describe the meta-consortium (expectations, how it functions);
  • Analyse certain key processes of how these different entities function;
  • Make recommendations for the future.

KEY programme case study

The KEY programme, funded by the European Union via the ETF and the European Development Fund (11th FED), involves 28 international and national organisations organised into 5 consortiums spread across 48 communes in northern and central Mali.
It is therefore a very interesting case study with significant lesson learning potential for the members of the existing consortiums and aid organisations in general.
