November 21, 2018 at the headquarters of the AU,
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Excellency, Commissioner for Peace and Security, Smail Chergui,

Your Excellency, Ambassador Morten Aasland, Permanent Representative of Norway to the African Union,

Excellency Ladies and Gentlemen Ambassadors,
Ladies and Gentlemen, Members of the Diplomatic Corps,
Ladies and Gentlemen, Representatives of International Organizations,
Ladies and Gentlemen, Representatives of the Commission of the African Union
Distinguished Representatives of Civil Society Organizations,
Distinguished guests,
Ladies and gentlemen,
Any other protocol respectfully observed:

It is a pleasure and an honor to be part of the launching ceremony of the following three (3) key operational and strategic documents on Reconstruction and Post-Conflict Development (PDCD):
- Guidance Note for the Implementation of AU Policy on the Undertaking
- The Results-based Framework for the activities of the RDCP
- Briefing Note on Implementation of Quick Impact Projects: Lessons Learned from Somalia.

Excellency Ladies and Gentlemen,

I would like to take this opportunity to highlight the fundamental importance of Post-Conflict Reconstruction and Development on the African continent.

As you know, reconstruction and peacebuilding are the central challenges facing African countries in post-conflict situations. As we strengthen our efforts in prevention, it becomes imperative to ensure the sustainability of our actions through comprehensive and integrated action by developing structural responses to achieve lasting peace and stability in such contexts.

Indeed, the map of instability in Africa shows that the majority of violence eruptions are located in countries that already have a history of conflict. It is clear that many countries are locked in a cycle of conflict, that is, even if hostilities have ended, even though violence has decreased, the causes that led to the outbreak of conflict to be resolved.

Let us recall that the protocol establishing the Peace and Security Council defines among the objectives of this body: "the promotion and implementation of peacebuilding and post-conflict reconstruction activities to consolidate peace and prevent the resurgence ".

The persistence of conflict cycles in various meetings requires the development and implementation of short-term measures; medium-term programs and long-term policies. The post-conflict reconstruction that forms the framework for these different measures lies at the confluence of conflict resolution and emergency assistance and development.

Post-conflict reconstruction and development policy therefore requires a multidimensional approach, a range of multidisciplinary skills to provide a lasting and comprehensive response to the conflicts in question.

Excellency Ladies and Gentlemen,

I would like to mention some actions and measures that convey the ambition of the African Union in post-conflict reconstruction and development:

- The creation of the strategic and normative framework of the Reconstruction and post-conflict development policy adopted in Banjul in 2006 and the refinement of this framework through specific actions to resolve the root causes of conflicts;

- The implementation of the creation of the center that creates the Center for Development and Post-Conflict Reconstruction (CDRPC) in Cairo, Egypt;

- The launch of the African Solidarity Initiative (ISA), in 2012, to support and encourage African states to support reconstruction and development efforts in post-conflict countries and build their capacity;

- The establishment of Stabilization Missions such as, AMISOM in the stabilization of the security situation in Somalia, the Multinational Joint Combat Force against Boko Haram and the Lake Chad Basin Commission as a permanent structure of consultation to name just that.

In this regard, the African Union framework for the DPRK is an appropriate instrument by which the Peace and Security Council should exercise its mandate in this area.

In spite of the limited resources of our organization, it proposes to bring the African surplus value in the PRC which consists in the intimate knowledge of the problems, the exchange of good practices between African States; and solidarity between member states.

Excellency Ladies and Gentlemen,

Post-conflict reconstruction and development is a priority area where partner support is essential and urgent, as crisis and conflict resolution efforts need to be supported by concrete actions and appropriate measures for the rehabilitation of the institutions of countries emerging from conflict situations.

I wish to emphasize the need to ensure the support of our partners and their commitment to this process by harmonizing the priorities identified in the field in order to complement the AU's efforts.

Finally, I reaffirm the availability of the Peace and Security Council for Accompaniment as a decision-making body to mobilize the support required for the reconstruction and development of countries emerging from conflict.

Thank you for your attention.
