The Tana High-Level Forum is an annual meeting which brings together a wide spectrum of African leaders, heads of state and government; leaders of regional organisations; concerned civil society; the private sector; eminent scholars and practitioners; students, youth media and representatives of African and non-African multi-lateral bodies.

The continental forum intends for Africa to eventually control its own security destiny by crafting home-grown solutions and avoid externally designed solutions particularly those driven from neo-realist assumptions.

This year’s Forum will further open wide-ranging dynamic debates on the nature and causes of security challenges Africa is facing. Africa’s role in global security and peace mission will be high on agenda for discussion during the two-day gathering.

Andreas Eshete, the deputy chairperson of Tana Board, said the theme of Tana Forum 2016 is timely and the Forum will serve as a platform to craft African-led solutions to continent’s security problems.

Participants will collaboratively engage in thorough discussions on current security status of Africa and are expected to put directions on ways how to combat pending security threats posed against the continent.

The chairman of the Kofi Annan Foundation and former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan will be a keynote speaker to address peace and security-related issues of the continent.

Rwandan President, Paul Kagame, is also expected to address the forum on Africa’s development based on Rwanda experience.
