The 2RC President, Ambassador Félix Baumann, was invited to brief the Permanent Delegation of the African Union in Geneva on the CCM. The meeting that was held on 19 February 2020 at an Ambassadorial level served to provide information on the Convention and its implementation to African State representatives. The President highlighted his priorities for the year especially regarding further universalization of the Convention on the continent which still had 9 signatory States and 11 States not Party. He also mentioned specific activities to be undertaken during the year that would be in line with the AU’s theme of the year “Silencing the Guns”, an initiative that is part of the AU Agenda 2063 and whose aim is to end all conflicts on the continent by 2020.
