Women are playing a key role in Mali's recovery from violent conflict, according to the UN's head of humanitarian operations.

The government and rebels had been fighting for control of the West African country but a peace deal was signed in June this year.

Around 3.1 million people are still in need of relief assistance.

John Ging, the UN humanitarian office, OCHA‘s, Operations Director, has just returned from a visit to Mali.

Daniel Dickinson asked him what role women have been playing in the recovery.
