The AU Mediation Support Capacity Project’s Steering Committee meeting was held in Addis Ababa on November 8, 2010. The meeting brought together the partners to discuss the project activities so far, as well as review the 2011 work plan and budget.
Present at the meeting were representatives of the African Union Conflict Management Division (AU CMD), Crisis Management Initiative (CMI) and ACCORD, as well as the representatives of the project funder, the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
The project aims to strengthen the mediation support capacity of the African Union. It is undertaken in support of a larger AU initiative serving this goal, involving the UN Mediation Support Unit and several other partners. More information on the project can be found here.
