On 14 April 2021, ACCORD’s Founder and Executive Director, Dr Vasu Gounden hosted the Australian High Commissioner to South Africa, Botswana, Eswatini and Mozambique, H.E. Gita Kamath at the ACCORD Headquarters.
The High Commissioner was due to visit ACCORD in March 2020, but her visit was postponed due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, and South Africa subsequently going into lockdown.
The visit provided an opportunity to share with the High Commissioner, the work that ACCORD is doing across the continent. Dr Gounden delivered a presentation on Africa’s conflict trends and ACCORD’s response.
