Mali is a landlocked country, formerly part of the three ancient Sahelian empires of Ghana, Mali and Songhai. A the height of the Mali empire in the 13th century, the town of Timbuktu was a centre of culture, learning and Islamic religion, and Djenne was an international trade centre. In the late 19th century, France seized control of the present day area of Mali, making it a part of French Sudan. Mali won independence in 1960 as the Mali Federation with Senegal, shortly afterwards becoming the Republic of Mali in its current borders. Under one-party rule until a coup in 1991, Mali transitioned to a multi-party state with the first elections in 1992. Mali was perceived internationally as a fairly stable democratic country during this time. In 2012 there were two military coups and armed conflict between the state, Tuareg Islamic militants, which was eventually resolved with a return to democratic elections in 2013.

Intrusive igneous rocks (dolerites) can either act as a barrier to flow, or can provide preferential pathways for groundwater flow. Under certain conditions they also form aquifers of local importance.
