Done! Ministers from the four member states of the Mano River Union met in Conkary and have adopted the draft Security Strategy for submission to the Heads of States. I led a team of three consultants, including Patrice Vahard and Zannoubo Vinagnon, to draft the Strategy. It was then reviewed, refined and validated by experts from all four countries who agreed to recommend it for adoption by the Council of Ministers. The thrust of the Strategy is to align development activities and security measures within a coherent framework of regional collaboration. For the first time we are no longer counting security related matters to the forces of law and order, but bringing development actors into the picture by creating Joint Border units to be the centre of accelerated development between the four countries. The Strategy is good, but can we implement it effectively and on time?
