Mozambique Calls for Stronger Partnerships Between Regional Organisations and the UN

On Monday 22 January, Mozambique advocated strengthening partnerships and cooperation between regional organisations and the United Nations (UN) system, particularly for the early identification of conflict risks.

Speaking during a Security Council meeting entitled “Building and Sustaining Peace Through Comprehensive Approaches: Investing in People, Including the Empowerment of Women”, Mozambique’s deputy representative to the UN, Domingos Fernandes, considered the combination of regional and international efforts to be fundamental to the success of peacebuilding initiatives.

“As well as responding to immediate human security needs, organisations can also help promote sustainable growth through economic integration, good governance, peace and security,” he explained.

According to the source, successful peacebuilding includes disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration of former combatants and meeting the needs of displaced and repatriated people, actions that must be combined with social reconstruction.

“In Mozambique, peace-building efforts have also benefited from international support. Most recently, the UN Secretary General’s personal envoy to Mozambique, Mirko Manzoni, provided good offices, facilitated dialogue for the signing of the Maputo Peace Agreement, resulting in the disarmament and demobilisation of more than 5,000 ex-combatants,” he recalled.
