Enhancing Peace and Security in the Eastern Africa Region

EASF Participates in Early Warning Systems' Meeting in Gabon

The Eastern Africa Standby Force took part in the 21st technical meeting on Continental Early Warning System (CEWS) held on 21st and 22nd June 2018 which was hosted by the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) in Libreville, Gabon.

The meeting, another one in a series of regular quarterly meetings among the African Union, Regional Economic Communities (RECS) and Regional Mechanisms (RMs), aimed at harmonizing the operationalization of the CEWS project across the African continent. This included documentation of best practices in this field as well as identifying concrete plans and activities as stipulated in the implementation road-map.

After the implementation of the CEWS project, regions will be able to share information on potential conflict situations and thus take appropriate actions to arrest further escalation of conflicts.
