Ad-Hoc Working Group on Conflict Prevention and Resolution in Africa

Presidency of the Ad-Hoc Working Group on Conflict Prevention and Resolution in Africa

The Security Council has created working groups that consist of representatives of the members of the Security Council to discuss a range of issues related to the general work of the Council such as procedural questions, peacekeeping operations and protections of civilians.

The Ad Hoc Working Group on Conflict Prevention and Resolution in Africa, of which Rwanda had the presidency from 1 January 2013 to December 31, 2013, was established on 1 March 2002 to monitor the implementation of recommendations outlined in previous Council decisions regarding conflict prevention and resolution in Africa as well as to propose recommendations on the enhancement of cooperation between the Security Council and the Economic and Social Council and other United Nations agencies dealing with Africa.

Currently, Nigeria holds the chairmanship of the Ad-Hoc working Group on Conflict Prevention  and Resolution in Africa.
