Consultancy Service to Support Communication and Awareness of the African Union’s Silencing the Gun Program Organization: African Union - InterAfrican Bureau for Animal Resources Country: Ethiopia Closing date: 16 Oct 2018 Background In Africa, the cycle of violent conflicts and disruptive crises persists, with various parts of the continent continuing to experience insecurity, instability, disruption of political harmony, erosion of social cohesion and public despondency. This scenario is upheld by a range of factors, including poverty, economic hardships, violation or manipulation of constitutions, encroachment of human rights, exclusion, inequalities, marginalization, mismanagement of the continent’s rich ethnic diversity, external interference, as well as relapses in some post-conflict settings. Undoubtedly, these challenges can be overcome, with a strategic approach that identifies appropriate remedies, institutes sustainable implementation processes, and overall, integrates peace and security into the pursuit for socio-economic development and transformation across Africa. Towards ending violence and maintaining peace on the continent, the Organization of African Unity/African Union (OAU/AU) 50 th Anniversary Solemn Declaration adopted the objective of Silencing the Guns in Africa by 2020.
