Meetings on Sahel Strategies

28 November 2016
29 November 2016

Through the United Nations Office for West Africa and the Sahel (UNOWAS), the United Nations is working to prevent conflict and support efforts to consolidate peace and democratic governance in countries emerging from conflict or political crisis. UNOWAS does this primarily by engaging in preventive diplomacy, good offices and political mediation and facilitation efforts.

ECDPM’s Damien Helly has been invited to participate in the meeting of the Technical Secretariat to prepare the meeting of the Ministerial Coordination Platform of Sahel Strategies. The main objectives of this meeting are:

  • Discussions on the roadmap of the Chadian Presidency of the Platform;
  • Review of the report on the sectorial mapping of Sahel strategies and initiatives;
  • Preparations for the next meeting of the Ministerial Coordination Platform.

Together with ISS, Dr Helly will present the report on the sectorial mapping of Sahel strategies and initiatives, followed by discussion.
