Following the work of the Joint Roundtable of the Economic Community of Central African States (CEEAC)/UNOCA (United Nations representation for Central Africa) on regional integration, on October 19 in Yaounde, Cameroon, the experts proposed several solutions on issues of peace and security.
In the opinion of many participants, the success of the community space requires above all the acceleration and implementation of the regional integration project.
Others suggested putting people at the center. Not to mention that the pooling of efforts should also be based on education, cultural exchanges and trade and information exchange. For most people and researcher, it’s better they share the “living together” and fiercely fighting extremism, barbarism, terrorism and latent separatism and irredentism.
For the department head of the Early Warning Mechanism of Central Africa (Mécanisme d’alerte rapide de l’Afrique centrale – Marac), Daniel Pascal Elono (photo), the collection and exchange of information are an effective tool in the fight against violent extremism in the subregion. That’s why he called to highlight and reaffirm cooperation in the various Member States of the CEEAC. “Some countries act as a shield for others, hence the need to strengthen regional integration,” concluded the Marac service manager.
