The 7th edition of the Tana High-Level Forum on Security in Africa is ongoing in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia since Saturday 21st and concludes 22nd of April 2018.
On the sidelines of the 7th Tana Forum, Rwandas Foreign Affairs Minister Louise Mushikiwabo participated in the Munich Security Round-table on Human Security on how to counter the consequences of climate change.
Deliberations are being held under the theme ; “Ownership of Africa’s Peace and Security Provision: Financing and Reforming the African Union.”
Faced with security threats that are rapidly and constantly changing, and compounded by economic and social challenges that inhibit development ambitions in Africa, the question that is increasingly being asked is how to promote the participation of civil society in the management of public affairs and, in particular, political and security matters.
“Insecurity takes many forms, from terrorism to uncontrolled migration to divisive politics or even consequences of the failure to adapt to climate change. But whatever the challenge is, we can most successfully address it by working together,” Paul Kagame said recently.
The African Union has a heavy and ambitious agenda that includes, amongst others, peace and security, trade liberalization, food security, the sustainable use of natural resources and energy, climate change and migration.
The Tana High-Level Forum on Security in Africa is an annually brings together African leaders and stakeholders together to engage and explore African-led security solutions.
The Forum complements the formal meetings of African heads of state and government by assembling them in an informal, collaborative environment.
