AfDB Meeting brainstormed on ending conflict and Building Peace in Africa

Submitted by on May 22, 2014 – 1:21 pmNo Comment

President Donald Kaberuka established the High Level Panel on Fragile States (HLPFS) chaired by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia. The panel consists of seven eminent experts: Dame Barbara Stocking, Callisto Enias Madavo, Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi, Gilbert Fossoun Houngbo, Greg Mills, Rakiya Omar, and Sarah Cliffe. The HLPFS report titled Ending Conflict and Building Peace in Africa: A Call to Action discusses in depth the experience of countries and partners in engaging in situations of fragility. This report comes at a critical time in light of the current emerging combined pressures of rapid urbanization, climate change, youth unemployment, inequality, and new discoveries of natural resources. Each of these factors place African societies under considerable strain and risk. Urgent attention must also be given to the transition of national movements into state-building and peace-building processes. The event will provide further attention to the urgent need to act immediately to ensure systems and policies are responsive, not only to address ongoing conflict, but to create an environment where future conflicts can be mitigated or avoided altogether in the long term. Uburenganzira.com brings you the session in pictures.
