Capacity Building in Africa: Towards a Stronger Partnership

back to list of events

Information

Representatives from the EU’s institutions, African embassies based in Brussels, Africa’s regional parliaments, African Science and Research Directors, and leading NGOs will gather at a morning round-table discussion to be held in Brussels. The discussion will centre on forging stronger partnership between Africa, the E.U and the U.S in the fields of security, defence and health. 

The morning’s principal presentation will come from Pax Mondial - a crisis response, stabilisation and development organisation in operation in Africa and around the world. The organisation’s overarching goal is to help individuals and institutions build safe, stable and productive societies and, to this end, it delivers integrated operational support services to enable its partners to build capacities and operate effectively in high-risk environments. Pax Mondial believes strongly that partnership and local ownership of the activities they support are crucial to the long-term success of those efforts, and have therefore developed enduring relationships with local partners in African countries.
