Download: Concept Note

The 10th edition of the Tana High-Level Forum on Security in Africa was held from 14-16th October 2022, in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia, under the theme, “Managing Security Threats: Building Resilience for the Africa We Want”. In line with the tradition of the Tana Forum, the Secretariat is mandated to organize multi-stakeholders forum on selected themes with the aim of forging and deepening conversation on topical issues and outcomes. It is against this backdrop that the next Post-Tana Forum will be organized from 28-29 March, in Abuja, Nigeria in partnership with Humanity United and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). This Post-Tana Forum is on the theme “Enhancing Regional Responses to Political Transitions”. This post-forum which will also be organized almost at the same time as the Second Summit for Democracy (29-30 March) presents a great opportunity to influence the conversations of the Summit. The United States will co-host this Summit with the governments of Costa Rica, the Netherlands, Republic of Korea, and Republic of Zambia. The Second Summit for Democracy will bring together world leaders in a virtual, plenary format, followed by gatherings in each of the co-hosted countries with representatives from government, civil society, and the private sector. This concept note is developed to serve as a guide to participants converging in Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital and the ECOWAS capital to deliberate upon and propose innovative ways to advance and strengthen regional responses to political transitions, especially military coups and other forms of Unconstitutional Change of Government (UCG).
