Consulting the actors
DESCRIPTION OF THE DEVELOPMENT / CONSULTATION PROCESS OF THE PROPOSAL PREPARED FOR MCA- Mali
1. DEVELOPMENT OF THE PROPOSAL OF MALI
A Coordinating "Support Project to the Development and Implementation of MCA Mali" was set up by the Government with the financial support of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
A MCA Mali Coordinator was appointed. With the help of National Consultants, he led the development of the Proposal. All the necessary technical studies were carried out by the aforementioned Consultants.
Mali Compact is a coherent formulation of actions necessary to attain the economic growth and poverty reduction objective, as expressed during permanent dialogues with all the representatives of the economic and social actors.
2. CONSULTATION PROCESS
In accordance with the guidelines provided by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) for the development of the Program proposal regarding the Millennium Challenge Account (MCA), Mali instituted a very advanced framework of dialogue with the various actors of the Society.
Consequently, for several months, the development of the MCA Mali Proposal mobilized, within a permanent exchange framework, all the actors interested in the promotion of the economic growth through investment and those responsible for poverty reduction policies namely: the Government, the Civil Society and the Private Sector.
The key actors concerned are:
With Central Administrations: Work meetings, at various stages, took place with the representatives of central administrations designated for this purpose. They permitted to ensure the coherence of the proposed MCA Mali Program, with the various national laws, rules and administrative provisions into force. High level consultations were carried out with the Prime Ministerâ€™s Technical Advisers; the General Secretaries, Technical Advisers and National Directors from the different Ministries.
With the Civil Society and the Private Sector: At the various stages of the development of the Proposal, regular consultations took place in Bamako and in the Office du Niger Zone between the Coordination and the various actors. Several meetings which became opportunities of profitable exchanges were organized with the members representing Civil Society organizations and the Private Sector. Taking advantage of these opportunities, MCA Mali Coordination exposed and explained all the technical aspects of the activities planned for the implementation the Program. All the contributions were carefully noted in order to take them into account and improve the Proposal.
A periodic information bulletin is published by the Coordination among the actors implied in the process and, beyond these actors, among all the interested people and structures. This Information bulletin reports the activities of the Coordination and helps follow progress made in the development process.
There exists a dialogue framework which allows a broad distribution of information about the process and the various Components of MCA Mali Program.
This framework of dialogue is illustrated in the following diagram:

These actions are supported by various activities planned under MCA Mali Program implementation, including those related to stakeholderâ€™s capacity building.
