In this context, in February 2014 IDMC organized a participatory workshop on durable solutions in Bamako to support the development of a national durable solutions strategy in Mali. The two- day event gathered national and international professionals from both humanitarian and development sectors. At the outcome of the workshop the participants developed 10 recommendations for the future strategy that were submitted to the working task force on durable solutions.
