AU SAFGRAD FACILITATED AMNESTY MONTH ACTIVITIES IN BURKINA FASO

 AU SAFGRAD FACILITATED AMNESTY MONTH ACTIVITIES IN BURKINA FASO

In July 2017, African Union has declared the month of September of each year, till 2020, as “AFRICA AMNESTY MONTH. As part of the implementation of Africa Amnesty Month in Burkina Faso, AU SAFGRAD facilitated during December 2018 two successful workshops.

- Background of “Africa Amnesty Month”

The 29th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of African Union, held on 3-4 July 2017, in Addis Ababa, has declared the month of September of each year, till 2020, as “AFRICA AMNESTY MONTH” for the surrender and collection of illicit small arms and light weapons. Among the measures called for by the Assembly is the voluntary surrender of illicit weapons in civilian possession during the Africa Amnesty Month, on the condition of anonymity and immunity from prosecution. The Assembly further called on MS, Regional Economic Communities (RECs), civil societies and the media, to widely publicize this initiative and promote adherence among communities and target groups.

In support of the Africa Amnesty Month Initiative, AU Commission has provided direct assistance to interested Member States (MS) in designing and implementing national initiatives. Assistance offered included organizing sensitization events, stakeholders consultations and training workshops aimed at building capacities for regulating arms possession; arms collection, management and disposal; community engagement; and media mobilization. The Commission intended to facilitate the exchanges of experience and lessons learned among MS.

The overall objective of the Commission’s assistance is to ensure that the Africa Amnesty Month initiative is conducted effectively, safely, and in a manner that contributes to violence reduction and stabilization. Due to the limited resources available at the pilot phase of the initiative, assistance has been extended to a limited number of MS among which Burkina Faso.

Activities in Burkina Faso designed and implemented by CNLPAL

The National Commission to Combat the Proliferation of Small Arms and Light Weapons (CNLPAL) is the national entity in charge of the design and implementation of activities planned for the African month of Amnesty.

Support requested by Burkina Faso included sensitization of Media and Civil Society on the Africa Amnesty Month; training of Police personnel on arms management; media campaigns; production of awareness raising materials and publications; and activities relating to the collection, storage and disposal of surrendered arms. More specifically activities of training workshop and awareness campaign were held in two important places, namely Dedougou, in Mouhoun Region, and Bobo Dioulasso, in Hauts-Bassins Region. Due to various circumstances, the two activities previously planned to be held in September were finally implemented during the month of December.

- AU SAFGRAD selected by AUC to facilitate the “Africa Amnesty Month” activities in Burkina Faso

AUC Technical Office, established in Ouagadougou since 1977, AU SAFGRAD has been designated to facilitate the implementation of the activities in Burkina Faso by providing administrative assistance and support in executing the national activities.

In this regard, under the overall supervision of Dr Ahmed ELMEKASS, Head of office, and with the financial and administrative control of Mr. Issiaka OUEDRAOGO, Finance and Administrative Officer (FAO), Mr. Youssoupha MBENGUE, Senior Communication Officer, was nominated as Focal Officer of the Africa Month Initiative for Burkina Faso. Mr. MBENGUE worked closely with the Peace and Security Department (PSD) to review and finalize the proposed activities, and oversee implementation at the national level as appropriate.

   - Implementation of the activities on the ground

The Workshop in Dedougou, Mouhoun Region

Thus, the first activity was held on 4 and 5 December 2018 in Dedougou (250 kms far from the Capital City Ouagadougou), Mouhoun Region where AU SAFGRAD facilitated the organization by CNLPAL of “an awareness compaign and training workshop for the benefit of local communities, civil society organizations (CSOs) and defense and security forces in the MOUHOUN Region on the illicit circulation of fire arms”. The two-day gathering was attended by more than sixty (60) participants comprised mainly by representatives of local communities, Defense and Security Forces personnel, CSOs members, Religious leaders and other relevant stakeholders.

The Workshop in Bobo Dioulaso, “Hauts Bassins” Region

The second activity planned by Burkina Faso government through CNLPAL took place on 19-20 December in Bobo Dioulasso, second largest city of the country and 365 kms far from the Capital City Ouagadougou.

This second meeting was related to a “Training workshop on controlling artisanal explosives and firearms in the Hauts-Bassin Region”. Approximately fifty (50) participants attended the two-day workshop that noticed a massive participation of the gunsmiths from the region.

- Success of the two workshops

Both activities were very successful judging by the massive participation of stakeholders and the interest shown by various actors during the workshop sessions.

In addition, these sensitization workshops take place in a particular security context in the country affected by the violent extremism underway in the Sahelo-Saharan zone.

Ambient insecurity is pushing community associations to take security initiatives that are not always in compliance with state regulations, particularly with regard to the detention of light weapons and ammunition. Communications during the various meetings have tried to address these various challenges.

The participants, led by the representatives of the state authorities, particularly thanked African Union Commission for its valuable support in the framework of the Africa Amnesty Month Initiative.

AU SAFGRAD TO ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE TO THE FIRST INTRA-AFRICAN TRADE FAIR IN CAIRO, EGYPT, 11-17 DEC. 18

The African Union Commission (AUC), in collaboration with the Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) and the Government of Republic Arab of Egypt, is hosting the IATF 2018 taking place from the 11 – 17 December 2018 at the Al Manara International Conferences Centre (AMICC) in the city of Cairo, Egypt.

Analysis by the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) shows that one of the main reasons why intra-African trade is low at around 15% compared to Europe (59%), Asia (51%), and North America (37%) is because of lack of access to trade and market information. To address this challenge, Afreximbank decided to, among other initiatives, convene the Intra-African Trade Fair every two years to provide trade and market information and connect buyers and sellers from across the continent.

The Intra-African Trade Fair is the first of its kind in Africa, consisting of a 7-day trade show that provides a platform for sharing trade, investment and market information and enabling buyers and sellers, investors and countries to meet, discuss and conclude business deals. It provides an opportunity for exhibitors to showcase their goods and services, engage in Business to Business (B2B) exchanges and conclude business deals.

AU SAFGRAD is actively taking part of the event as the Specialized Technical office of the African Union in the area of agriculture research and development in semi-arid zone of Africa and with the mandate to contribute to the advancement of agricultural research, technology transfer and marketing as well as the management of nature resources. The Office is holding a booth within AU Pavillon at HALL 4. The booth is daily managed by Mr Youssoupha MBENGUE, Sr Information and Outreach Officer, assisted by Mr Gaafar RIZGALLAH, Documentalist, under the overall supervision of Dr Ahmed ELMEKASS, AU SAFGRAD Coordinator.

Dr ELMEKASS is also being Panalist for Conference session on "Market Access Support for Smallholders (farmers) and SMEs".

AU SAFGRAD HELD IN ADDIS ABABA (ETHIOPIA) THE EXPERTS' WORKSHOP OF THE DRAFT CONTINENTAL IRRIGATION AND WATER DEVELOPMENT (CIAD) FRAMEWORK

The experts’ validation workshop of the draft Continental Irrigation and Agriculture Water Development (CIAD) framework was held at the Conference Venue of AUC headquarters, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The 2-day workshop (11-12 December 2018) was organized by AU-SAFGRAD as part of its support program to facilitate the promotion and adoption of Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) technologies in the continent.

 

Agricultural water is central to agriculture-based livelihoods. Reliable access to sufficient quantities and quality of water is essential to increase crop production, mitigate drought and strengthen livelihood resilience in the Continent.  The AU’s Malabo 2014 Declaration has defined a set of priorities and strategies to achieve agriculture-led prosperity (improved livelihood and shared prosperity) in Africa. Water control and use in both irrigation and rain-fed farming feature prominently in the prescription to doubling productivity and ensuring sustainability in the sector.

 

The workshop attracted a wide range of irrigation and agricultural water experts from within and outside the Continent in framing the direction to advance the development of irrigation and Agwater use in the Continent. The Expert meeting deliberated on issues of continental relevance as well as strategic and technical concerns that will impact regional and national domestication of the Continental blueprint.
