Enhancing Peace and Security in the Eastern Africa Region

EASF Takes Part in the Africa Security Symposium

The African Security Symposium 2017 was held during the 25th week of the year at Hotel Radisson Blu in Nairobi, Kenya. The two day event was a unique platform bringing together senior government as well as agency officials, NGOs, contractors, buyers, suppliers and key decision-makers for presentations and bilateral discussions on matters related to Africa's peace and security.

The Symposium focussed on developing peace-keeping and security strategies in the key areas of infrastructure and communications, reconstruction, disaster management, support operations, advanced technologies and logistics solutions.

The EASF Head of Peace Operations Department (POD), Brigadier Albert Kendagor shared the regional peacekeeper's perspective on regional relations and security with the symposium's audience. He underlined the important roles played by sub-regional organizations whether political or economic in cultivating sustainable peace and security at grassroots' level. Brig. Kendagor explored the relationship between peace and economic progress noting that this relationship can be further fostered through consistent monitoring and evaluation. Such tools can be used to identify gaps and thus assist management teams in addressing the earmarked shortfalls in a prompt and effective manner.

The EASF delegation to the Symposium included the Director, Dr. Abdillahi Omar Bouh, the Head of POD, the Chief of Staff and the Military Assistant to the Director.
