Malian Development Framework


The Strategic Framework for Growth and Poverty Reduction (CSCRP or Cadre Stratégique pour la Croissance et la Réduction de la Pauvreté), was adopted by the Government in December 2006 as:
• A unique reference framework for Mali development policies and strategies covering the period 2008-2012;
• A reference for key donors in their support to the country;
• A dialogue framework between all stakeholders in Mali.

It is a National Development Strategy that aims at accelerating growth, reducing poverty and improving the well being of the population.

The President’s Economic and Social Development Programme (PDES) is derived from the CSCRP, and is more operational: it is a programme, while the CSCRP is a strategy. Therefore, the two are complementary, and the PDES utilizes political will and the commitment of the Head of State to implement the CSCRP.

The CSCRP streamlines initiatives aimed at achieving the MDGs. In this sense, the CSCRP is aligned with the MDGs and is the strategy that will allow Mali to achieve its development goals, including the MDGs.

The Mali-UNICEF country programme is influenced by:

• global level: MDGs, UNICEF MTSP, the Paris Declaration, UNICEF missions, etc.
• national level: children and women situation, national priorities such as the CSCRP, the PDES, UNDAF, UNICEF comparative advantage within the UN country team in Mali, etc.

The ultimate goal of social policy and UNICEF Mali’s development framework is to influence policies and strategies at the national level to benefit children and women. It is an upstream action, aiming at high-level, evidence-based policy and advocacy using results of research to advocate for policies, budget allocations and legislative reforms to accelerate progress towards the MDGs and the fulfilment of child rights.
