Third Aswan Forum for Sustainable Peace and Development
21 June - 22 June 2022
The Forum will address a number of Africa’s priorities, including enhancing cooperation to combat terrorism, overcoming the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, achieving food security, and advancing post-conflict reconstruction and development efforts; reflecting Egypt’s keenness to advance the African cooperation agenda at a critical juncture in international relations.
This year’s edition of the Aswan Forum has special significance as it will be building up to the 27th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 27) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), to be hosted by Egypt in November 2022. Accordingly, it will place emphasis on examining the impacts of climate change on sustainable peace and development efforts in Africa.
