Sanctions related to Mali were enacted under the United Nations Act to give effect to United Nations Security Council resolutions. Subject to certain exceptions, the measures imposed against Mali include:

  • an assets freeze against persons designated by the UN committee established by Resolution 2374 (2017) to oversee the sanctions against Mali (the 2374 Committee); and
  • a travel ban against persons designated by the 2374 Committee.


On June 19, 2023, the Regulations Implementing the United Nations Resolutions on Mali were amended to allow the provision, processing or payment of funds, other financial assets or economic resources or the provision of goods and services that are necessary to ensure the timely delivery of urgently needed humanitarian assistance or to support other activities related to basic human needs, if provided by specified groups. These changes are the result of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2664 (2022), which created a carve-out for the delivery of humanitarian assistance in all current UN sanctions regimes that impose asset freezes.


On September 5, 2017, acting under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations, the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 2374 (2017), imposing a travel ban and asset freeze on individuals or entities designated by the 2374 Committee.

To date, no individuals or entities have been designated by the 2374 Committee.
