MEA Risk’s Critical Incidents Tracker reports that despite a relatively quiet week (ending November 30th, 2014), the Sahelian nation of Mali is facing a series of challenges that promise to make governance a very difficult task. From a stability perspective, the country’s CIncidents Index remains dangerously high at 2.54/5.0, maintaining the country as an Extreme High Risk Zone.

The lowering of the numbers is a function of decreasing number of critical incidents by 23.5%, and a reduction of fatalities from 8 to 4.
