African Union

On 9.9.1999, the Heads of State and Government of the Organisation of African Unity issued a Declaration (the Sirte Declaration) calling for the establishment of an African Union, with a view, inter alia, to accelerating the process of integration in the continent to enable it play its rightful role in the global economy while addressing multifaceted social, economic and political problems compounded as they are by certain negative aspects of globalisation.


The main objectives of the OAU were, inter alia, to rid  the continent of the remaining vestiges of colonization and apartheid; to  promote unity and solidarity among African States; to coordinate and intensify  cooperation for development; to safeguard the sovereignty and territorial  integrity of Member States and to promote international cooperation within the  framework of the United Nations.


Indeed, as a  continental organization the OAU provided an effective forum that enabled all Member States to adopt coordinated positions on matters of common concern to the continent in international fora and defend the interests of Africa  effectively.


Through the OAU Coordinating Committee for the Liberation of Africa, the Continent worked  and spoke as one with undivided determination in forging an international  consensus in support of the liberation struggle and the fight against  apartheid.

L'Afrique est confrontée à une crise alimentaire d'une ampleur sans précédent. On s'attend à ce que des millions de personnes soient touchées par une aggravation de la faim dans un avenir proche en raison des conséquences de la guerre en Ukraine, qui s'ajoutent aux effets dévastateurs des conflits, de la variabilité du climat et des extrêmes climatiques, des ralentissements et des fléchissements économiques, et des répercussions de la pandémie de covid-19 sur les personnes les plus vulnérables.

It sets out to learn lessons from the implementation process of AU Agenda on land and stimulate discussion on the way forward to further improve land rights and land governance in Africa as a basis for equitable progress and prosperity.
