The Aswan Forum for Sustainable Peace and Development


Titre : The Aswan Forum for Sustainable Peace and Development

Pays : Egypte

Durée : August 2019 — December 2023

Africa is home to at least half of the fastest growing global economies. By 2030, one in every five people in the world will live in Africa. Its potential in resources, urbanization, industrialization and economic diversification is unmatched. However, this great potential is under threat, as a result of persisting and emerging challenges to peace, security and development, including conflict, terrorism, and forced displacement.

The last few years have witnessed the evolution of a comprehensive normative framework on sustaining peace and development, including the Sustainable Development Goals (2015), the sustaining peace twin resolutions (2016), and the interlinkages between these two agendas. The same period also saw a renewed interest in conflict prevention and addressing the roots causes of conflict. Missing so far, however, is the operationalization of these normative frameworks, by means of policies, operational guidance, programs and projects.

Acting in its capacity as the Chairman of the African Union 2019, Egypt took the initiative to launch the Aswan Forum for Sustainable Peace and Development in 2019. The Inaugural Meeting of the Forum focused on the Africa-specific operationalization of the interlinkages between sustainable development and sustaining peace in practice.

The Forum, held in December of every year, presents concrete and action-oriented recommendations to African heads of states and governments, leaders from national governments, regional and international organizations and financial institutions, the private sector, and civil society.
