DRL Fellows in Mali

Disaster Resilience Leadership (DRL) Fellows  participate in a series of leadership team-building games and simulations as part of a week long training in Bamako, Mali. The DRL workshop is being carried out in partnership with the Université des Sciences des Techniques et des Technologies de Bamako (USTTB). The program is sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and is primarily aimed at building disaster leadership capacity in vulnerable contexts. Mali, like other countries in the Sahel, is exposed to multiple risks of natural disasters, droughts, conflict, floods, and epidemics, among others.
