au-2-en-2013-delim-a-demar-user-guide (1).pdf.jpgDelimitation and Demarcation of Boundaries in Africa : General Issues and Case Studies
Book/Monograph, Created By African Union Commission Department of Peace and Security Department (PSD) in English language
It has been forty-nine years since the independent States of Africa, under the auspices of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), famously pledged to respect their territorial boundaries inherited from the colonial period at the Cairo Conference of 1964. Since that time, this acceptance of the territorial status quo at independence has been relatively successful in preventing major conflicts over territorial claims in Africa. However, often the popular understanding of ‘keeping the territorial status quo’ has also dissuaded African States from dealing with residual ...

Book/Monograph, Created By African Union Commission Department of Peace and Security Department (PSD) in English language
The delimitation and demarcation initiative meets three imperative needs: The first is geopolitical, concerning the peace, security and stability that derive from conflict prevention. The Programme does not aim for a new ‘Balkanisation’; rather, it is a way to reinforce State territorial sovereignty that brings with it the freedom to open up and integrate. The second need is geo-economics: a visible, well-managed border encourages trade. The third need is socio-economic, as local cross-border cooperation initiatives between committed neighbouring communities can be supported. ...

Book/Monograph, Created By African Union Commission Department of Peace and Security Department (PSD) in English language
The International Ammunition Technical Guidelines (IATGs) provide internationally acknowledged standards for the Physical Security and Stockpile Management (PSSM) of stockpiles of ammunition. Relatedly, the International Small Arms Control Standards (ISACS) provide internationally recognized guidelines for weapons management.

Physical Security and Stockpile Management.pdf.jpgPhysical Security and Stockpile Management: Preconditions and Sustainability
Book/Monograph, Created By African Union Commission Department of Peace and Security Department (PSD) in English language
National and international interventions are often able to improve Physical Security and Stockpile Management (PSSM) practices in the short-term. However, these improvements are often not maintained over time. In extreme cases, significant improvements to the safety and management of stockpiles, including the provision and construction of key infrastructure, have produced short-term benefits but have fallen out of use within a matter of years. Repeated often enough, the result is a series of piecemeal and disconnected interventions that, while well-intentioned, achieve little lasti...

Within almost 50% of the countries in Africa, unstable and insecure stockpiles of ammunition contribute to the illicit trade and proliferation of ammunition, as well as to devastating Unplanned Explosions at Munitions Sites (UEMS). The proliferation of ammunition fuels armed conflicts, crime, and terrorism, and can destabilize whole regions....
