The Permanent Representative of Ghana to the United Nations in New York, Amb. Harold Agyeman said the Council’s events in November will build on the “clear African focus” towards addressing threats against peace and security.

He said the first of the two signature events for the month will be an open debate taking place on November 3, addressing the theme of “Integrating effective resilience-building in peace operations for sustainable peace”, and will be chaired by Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, Ghana’s Minister for Foreign Affairs.

He said the debate will seek to foster “a focused conversation on balancing kinetic and non-kinetic components of peace operations, particularly in the continent of Africa”.
