  • 28 Apr 2019 - 09:58 - MUMBAI, INDIA - OOSKAnews Correspondent

    Jayantika Kutty, Research Analyst with think-tank Strategic Foresight Group (SFG) speaks with David Duncan, Publisher, OOSKAnews in this (LINK) OOSKAnewscast audio interview.

    This OOSKAnewscast was recorded on the occasion of the release of SFG’s fourth "Blue Peace Bulletin", “Water and Violence: Mali” (THE FULL APRIL 2019 BULLETIN CAN BE DOWNLOADED HERE).

    Kutty is part of the research team behind Blue Peace Bulletins, monthly publications which highlight issues related to water and violence in different geographic regions. She holds an MA in International Law and the Settlement of Disputes from the United Nations mandated University for Peace in Costa Rica. SFG is a Mumbai, India-based international think-tank engaged in crafting new policy concepts that enable decision makers to prepare for a future in uncertain times. It is estimated that of the approximately 18.5 million people in Mali, around 4.1 million Malians are food insecure and about 4.5 million people don't have access to clean water. Mali’s water infrastructure is yet to be used as a tool of violence during the on-going conflict. However, the conflict has had an impact on access to water leading to constant clashes between ethnic groups in the country.
     
    In the past few years, Fulani herders and Bambara and Dogon farmers (who are linked with the Donzo hunters group) have clashed over access to land and water. In January 2019, around 37 Fulani herders were killed in central Mali by armed men dressed as traditional Donzo hunters. Another deadly attack was carried out on the Fulani villagers by the Donzo hunters in March 2019 in the Mopti region in central Mali, which led to the death of nearly 160 people.
     
    “A Matter of Survival”, the 2017 Report of the Global High-Level Panel on Water and Peace called for protection of water resources and infrastructure from violent conflicts and terrorist acts. In the April 2019 Blue Peace Bulletin, SFG examines the issue of protecting water in Mali.
