The African Peacebuilding Coordination Programme at ACCORD will host a Stakeholders Forum in Durban, South Africa, from 26-27 November 2007. The purpose of the forum is to consult a variety of practitioners and experts on the findings and recommendations emanating from the field research conducted by ACCORD in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Liberia and Sudan, and to obtain their advice on the proposed work plan of the programme over the next three year cycle.
The field research missions that were conducted in the DRC, Liberia and Sudan aimed to provide an analysis and assessment of the mechanisms in place to coordinate and plan peacebuilding activities in conflict ridden areas. The overall objective of the field research was therefore to provide insight into peacebuilding coordination in each of these individual case studies so as to support the development of curriculum for the programme’s training courses.
The African Peacebuilding Co-ordination Programme is funded by the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and seeks to enhance coherence across the peace, security, humanitarian, development and human rights dimensions of African peacebuilding operations.
