MetadataShow full item record
Developed for readers and practitioners by the African Union Border Programme, this Volume gathers in Section I all the founding instruments and legal frameworks pertaining to international boundary issues on the African continent, and in Section II the reports, communiqués, and conclusions of the successive steps of policy implementation. This collection of official documents is the first one of a series of six pub¬lications designed and written by the African Union Border Programme to facilitate boundary management, from reaffirmation through delimi¬tation and demarcation, to locally initiated cross-border cooperation. The collection aims at disseminating good practices of the States on the continent as widely as possible. The African Union Border Programme contributes to achieving the following objectives: resolving issues that arise from the absence of delimitation and demarcation; facilitating the development of cross-border integration dynamics; supporting capacity building for the staff in charge of boundary management; mobilizing financial resources for delimitation and demarcation operations; and cross-border cooperation projects.
