The four-year UNTFHS-funded project entitled “Enhancing human security through developing local capacity for holistic community-based conflict prevention in Northern Ghana”, has been jointly implemented by six UN agencies, namely UNDP, UNICEF, WFP, FAO, UNIDO and UNU-INRA. The programme sought to empower local institutions, communities and individuals to manage and prevent conflict in Northern Ghana as a means to ensuring sustainable human security in the area. As a component of the project, a two-day conference will focus on approaches and practices addressing the challenges associated with human security in Africa. It will feature programme stakeholders (including UN agencies, beneficiaries, local and national institutions), keynote speakers, researchers, practitioners and policy makers from across the continent and from other parts of the world. For further information please contact: unuinra.hspgh@gmail.com or inra@unu.edu
