CEWARN convenes nat'l units and analysts to appraise regional conflict early warning report
CEWARN convened a validation workshop to review a regional Conflict Early Warning Report on13-15 April in Bishoftu, Ethiopia.
The report captures emerging peace and security issues and trends across the IGAD region that is intended to inform national and regional level conflict prevention interventions. The report was developed based on the outcomes of national conflict profiling exercises conducted in Djibouti, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda.
The regional workshop brought together CEWARN’s national Conflict Early Warning and Response Units (CEWERUs); IGAD peace and security Division Units as well as the CEWARN Unit. The report will be presented to CEWARN’s senior policy organ that comprises permanent secretaries of Ministries of Foreign affairs of IGAD Member states on 28 April 2021.
CEWARN’s current scope of conflict early warning operation is organized under five sectors namely: economy, social affairs, security, governance and environment.
The meeting was organized with support from the European Union under the IGAD Promoting Peace and Security in the Horn of Africa Region Programme (IPPSHAR).
