Since obtaining a Master’s degree in Management from the Faculté des Sciences Economiques et de Gestion (FSEG) in Bamako in 2007, Marwane Ag Abdoul Malick has worked with the national NGO Nouveaux Horizons as a supervisor on the FAO-funded food security programme and as a facilitator with the Consortium for the Development of Northern Mali (CDRNM). With his expertise on the people and terrain of the Gao region and his proven experience in participatory approach and development communication, Marwane joined HD as Mediation Adviser in Mali in January 2020.
The Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (HD) is a Swiss-based private diplomacy organisation founded on the principles of humanity, impartiality, neutrality and independence. Our mission is to help prevent, mitigate, and resolve armed conflict through dialogue and mediation.
As a Swiss nonprofit Foundation, HD is supervised by a Board, which serves on a voluntary basis. It sets the mission and the general policy of the Foundation and provides overall supervision of the development and implementation of the organisation’s programme and administration, as managed by the Senior Management Team.
HD’s team has grown from a small group of 6 people in 1999 to more than 300 from over 40 different nationalities today, supervised by a 11 member Senior Management Team. The organisation is made up of individuals driven by meaningful objectives who are dedicated to making a difference through peace and mediation efforts.
