The Tana High-Level Forum on Security in Africa in collaboration with the African Union Border Programme (AUBP) in Tanzania and the German Development Cooperation (GIZ) is set to organse a Tana Regional Multi-Stakeholders Pre-Forum event on 16-17 March 2017. The Pre-Forum, on the theme “RECs as a Platform for Regional Cooperation in Natural Resource Governance in Africa”, aims to set the stage for the discussions that will be held at the 6th Tana Forum and to bring together different regional perspectives in a concise and measured manner.


 

The pre-forum is expected to set an opportune platform to discuss the role of regional integration as a means to jointly manage Africa’s resources and forward recommendations on the impact of RECs on informing and triggering discussions about natural resource governance at the Tana Forum.

 

Experts drawn from the East African Community (EAC), Southern African Development Community (SADC), Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD), regional and international bodies such as the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) and the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR), civil society, media and a broad spectrum of stakeholders working on peace and security in Africa are expected to attend the meeting.

 

The Tana Forum is an independent initiative which seeks to provide an informal platform for African Heads of State/Government to engage in open and frank discussions with a wide spectrum of non-state stakeholders on the most pressing peace and security issues confronting the continent. Its 6th edition, under the theme Natural Resource Governance in Africa, is set to reflect on the centrality of natural resources, both in historical as well as in contemporary times, in understanding the far-reaching implications on state-society relations within the continent; and Africa’s disadvantageous position in global production and exchange since the earliest days of colonialism.
