Chapter Summary

The AU Commission, in collaboration with the UN and its Specialised Agency on Drug Control (UNODC), as well as ECOWAS and other Regional Economic Communities (RECs), agreed to intensify the fight against drug trafficking in Africa, particularly in West Africa. Participants examined how the UN system, international donors and African states might collaborate to implement the recommendations issued in July 2008 by the MDG Africa Steering Group chaired by Ban Ki-moon. At year's end, the RCM reviewed the AU-UN ten-year capacity-building programme, which aims to enhance the capacity of the AU Commission and African regional and subregional organisations to act as effective partners in addressing political, peace and security, and socioeconomic challenges in Africa. The priority of the year was to mobilise support and resources for the AU Special Summit on Refugees, Returnees and IDPs in Africa, within the context of the AU-UN ten-year capacity-building programme.
