The West Africa Network for Peacebuilding (WANEP) in partnership with the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) on 20th September, 2013 ended the 12th training session of the West Africa Peacebuilding Institute (WAPI); with 50 participants comprising of 24 females and 26 males from 14 countries across Africa from various organisations and institutions including African Union, ECOWAS and state security agencies.
WAPI this year held 7 courses as follows: Dialogue and Mediation; Theories and Practice of Peacebuilding; Human Security and Peacebuilding; Youth and Peace Education; Natural Resource Governance and Conflict Management; Early Warning and Early Response; Women and Gender Mainstreaming in Peacebuilding.
In evaluating the courses, participants expressed their utmost satisfaction, stating that the training has enhanced their peacebuilding spectrum with enormous knowledge and expertise to effectively contribute to the promotion of sustainable peace on the continent and beyond. According to a participant from Sierra Leone, WAPI is a big tree in the middle of Africa with the commitment to making sustainable impact through peacebuilding.
WANEP and KAIPTC would like to take this opportunity to once again thank their key partners the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Ghana, the Governments of Sweden, Denmark and Austria for their continuing support to peacebuilding in Africa.
