IGAD Member States to significantly broaden cooperation on prevention of national and trans-boundary violent conflicts

IGAD Member States' experts are gathered at Kampala’s Munyonyo Commonwealth Resort today to consult on broadening regional cooperation on prevention of national and trans-boundary violent conflicts

The two-day meeting is aimed at reviewing and paving the way for the launch of a post-2012 conflict early warning and response framework that will build on the work of IGAD’s Conflict Early Warning and Response Mechanism. CEWARN has so far been driving regional cooperation on cross-border security concerns including pastoral conflicts in the Horn of Africa region.
