Mali is the largest state in the region, and is landlocked. The Niger River constitutes the most important geographical element and the territory of the Republic is centered on it, which however includes, in addition to the Sudanese belt, a vast Sahelian and Saharan section. Already a colony of French West Africa, known as French Sudan, with independence Mali took on the name of the ancient empire that flourished on the banks of Niger, Islamized and enlivened by commercial relations between the African world and the Maghreb; this empire, which reached its apogee in the century. XIV, founded its wealth on trans-Saharan trade: Arab and Berber merchants came to get gold in exchange for goods from the Mediterranean world. It was in this period that the Sahelian cities (Tombouctou, Djenné, Gao) experienced their moment of maximum splendor. Tombouctou, a city now half-buried by the sands that advance inexorably towards the S, was a spiritual and cultural center comparable to the European Renaissance ones. Ethnically composite country, with limited resources, if we exclude the wealth of water represented by Niger, Mali ranks among the economically most backward countries in West Africa. The continental position, far from the coastal outlets, helped to slow down the French economic commitment in colonial times, so it began its life as an independent country in disadvantageous conditions. Politically, it initially chose a progressive and autonomous path, marking the national economy with a marked socialism; subsequently it had to follow a more conciliatory orientation both with the internal conservative forces and with France and the other countries of the western area. But the obstacles to development are numerous and of various kinds: among these, the precarious climatic conditions, as demonstrated by the repeated famines that hit the Sahelian belt. According to COUNTRYAAH, Mali is a nation in Western Africa, the capital city of which is Bamako. The latest population of Mali is 20,250,844.

Mali, like all of West Africa, is affected by the two-season climate, the mechanism of which is determined by the alternating monsoon-like influence of tropical sea masses coming from the SW and the Saharan continental masses. These prevail over much of Mali, where, especially in winter, during the long dry period, the hot desert wind blows, the harmattan. Given its geographical position, inside the continent, Mali has high temperatures all year round, with averages of 20-25 ºC in January and 27-32 ºC in July. Very strong are the differences in the maximum values, especially in the North, where in summer during the daytime hours it can exceed 50 ºC and in winter, during the night, touch zero. Precipitation gradually decreases from S to N, and with it the rainy season is also reduced, which in the Sahelian belt (the term sahel means bank and indicates the transition area between the regions with a desert climate and those with Sudanese type, more to the S) does not exceed three months.
