The UNESCO action in favor of a culture of peace in Africa


The UNESCO action in favor of a culture of peace in Africa is placed in the context of the implementation of the “Iintersectoral and Interdisciplinary Program of Action for a Culture of Peace and Non-violence” as well as in the Mid-Term Strategy (2014 -2021) of UNESCO, which has identified "building peace by building inclusive, peaceful and resilient societies" as one of two main areas of action for Africa. As such, the Operational Strategy for priority Africa integrates the development of Flagship programmes for the next four years, with the first one entitled "Promoting a culture of peace and non-violence". This action also aims to contributing to the implementation of programmes on regional integration, peace, security and democracy established in the African Union Commission Strategic Plan. It also aims at the implementation of the Charter for African Cultural Renaissance, the “Make Peace Happen” Campaign launched by the African Union in 2010, and its 2063 Agenda for the Development of Africa.  The overall objective of this action for Africa is to rely on sources of inspiration and the potential of cultural, natural and human resources of the continent and to identify concrete proposals of action for building a sustainable peace, which is the cornerstone of endogenous development and Pan-Africanism. The "Action Plan for a Culture of Peace in Africa" adopted in Luanda (Angola), in March 2013, provides the framework: the objectives, the general recommendations and the proposals for action.
