‘Creating the Political Space for Prevention: How ECOWAS Supports Nationally Led Strategies.'


In this workshop, ECOWAS Ambassador Tanou Kone and Director Abdou Lat Gueye of the Early Warning and Response Network (ECOWARN) will present ECOWAS' approach to conflict prevention, which combines both a root causes approach with a preventive diplomacy one. The workshop will be an opportunity to learn about ECOWAS' approach and to have a broader conversation about the role of regional organizations in the UN prevention agenda. Draft Concept note.pdf
