On 3rd. November 2023, FOSDA participated in the inauguration of the Ghana Chapter of the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC GHANA). The inaugural ceremony was organized under the auspices of the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict West Africa in partnership with the Human Security Research Centre Ghana.
The GPPAC GHANA project seeks a Ghana where violence and armed conflicts are prevented and resolved by peaceful means based on justice, gender equity, sustainable development, and human security for all.
The Minister for National Security, Mr. Kan Dappah, acknowledged the timing of the inauguration could not be more opportune for our beloved country, Ghana. He added that the contribution of Civil Society Organizations through non-kinetic measures such as community and stakeholder engagements, rigorous research to understand the conflict dynamics, public education, and sensitization complements the kinetic responses by the state.
We at FOSDA see this move as part of our collaborative effort with key partners and the government to promote peace and National Stability, which translates into economic development.
FOSDA was represented by Ali Ibraheem, program officer for Youth Peace And Security.
