Alternative Dispute Resolution Phase I


ICF supported the government of Mali to modernize and strengthen Mali’s Centre of Conciliation and Arbitration in an effort to reduce time and costs and eliminate uncertainties about commercial litigation in Mali.

The project reduced the time from trial to judgement of a commercial dispute from 860 days to 180 days; the number of arbitration cases has increased significantly, from only two cases within three years (2005 - 2008) to 19 cases within three months (March - May 2014).

The number of sectors seeking arbitration has increased from two (Energy and Mining) to eight (Energy, Mining, Trade, Consultancy, Telecommunications, Construction, Services and Agriculture).
