High-Level Meeting of the Peacebuilding Commission - Prevention and Peacebuilding in Burkina Faso
26 Sep 2019 -  The security situation in Burkina Faso has continued to deteriorate, with persistent armed attacks in the Sahel, North and East regions that have had serious humanitarian consequences.
At the request of the Government, the Peacebuilding Commission (PBC) and the Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) have been mobilized to accompany the country and provide programmatic support to the Government’s efforts to respond to existing and emerging threats to sustainable peace and development in Burkina Faso.
In follow-up to the PBC meeting of 16 May, the Government has requested the PBC to organise a High-Level Meeting with the President of Burkina Faso on 26 September in the margin of the General Assembly in order to sustain international attention to the situation in Burkina Faso and foster coherence among key partners.
The objective of the meeting is to update on peacebuilding challenges and threats to the stability of the country and discuss opportunities to provide adequate and coherent support for the Government’s peacebuilding priorities, including through the PPBA recommendations.
