Central African Republic: Six armed groups sign peace agreement in Bria

Note: This is an important agreement due to the fact that Bria is a few hours away from Ndassima and directly on the same access road.

https://reliefweb.int/report/central-african-republic/central-african-republic-six-armed-groups-sign-peace-agreement-bria

Six armed groups (the UPC, MPC, RPRC, MLCJ, Anti-Balaka (Mokom faction) and the FPRC)* signed an important peace agreement Tuesday 9 April in Bria, in the Central African Republic (CAR), which is expected to put an end to more than six years of violent conflict in the eastern region of Haute-Kotto.

The Accord is the result of talks convened by the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (HD) between the groups from 1-9 April 2019 in Bria. It also marks the culmination of months of intensive local mediation efforts led by HD to bring an end to violence across the Haute-Kotto region. Repeated attacks by the groups in the area since 2013 have led to the loss of many lives, widespread destruction of property and the displacement of thousands of people. The violence has also increased the divide between the Christian and Muslim communities which has been instrumentalised by the armed groups.

The Bria Agreement builds on the Accord for Peace and Reconciliation in the CAR (APPR), which was signed on 6 February 2019 between the Government and fourteen armed groups, including the six Bria Agreement signatories.

Under the terms of the Bria Accord, the parties have committed to:

Putting an end to violence;
Ensuring peace and security throughout the region;
Resolving grievances peacefully;
Refusing the instrumentalisation of differences based on politics, ethnicity or religion ;
Ensuring the safe return of refugees and internally displaced persons; and,
Guaranteeing the free movement of persons, goods and services, and humanitarian personnel. The follow-up committee set up under the APPR will be in charge of monitoring implementation of the Bria Accord.

“This Agreement represents an important step in strengthening the APPR and turning Central African people’s hope for peace and reconciliation into reality.” said Freddy Nkurikiye, HD’s Special Representative for Central and West Africa.

HD has been working in support of peace in the CAR since 2007, assisting both the country’s National Political Dialogue and community-based mediation efforts. HD played a key role in the 2008 Inclusive Political Dialogue, the 2015 Bangui Forum, the 2016 electoral process and more recently, the 2019 APPR process. The organisation has also been involved in the facilitation of local agreements such as the 2017 Bouar Agreement between the 3R and anti-Balakas armed groups which enabled the stabilization of parts of the Nana Mambéré province.

HD would like to thank the parties, the United Nations Multi-dimensional, integrated and stabilization Mission (MINUSCA) as well as the local administrative, traditional and religious leaders for their support to the mediation process which led to the Bria Agreement.

The organisation would also like to express its gratitude to the European Union for its financial support which has enabled HD to support peace efforts in CAR since 2014.

Central African Republic: $ 45 Million from World Bank for Solar Field Construction

https://africandailyvoice.com/2019/04/10/centrafrique-45-millions-dollars-banque-mondiale-construction-champ-solaire/

Bangui, Central African Republic (CAR) - The Central African government and the World Bank signed a $ 45 million multilateral agreement in Washington on April 9 for the construction of a solar field near the capital Bangui.

The Central African government represented by the Ministers of Economy, Planning and Cooperation, Félix Moloua and that of Finance and Budget Henri-Marie Dondra, sealed this agreement in a context where it places the energy issue at the center. of his concerns for this year 2019.

With a rate of access to electricity that is 4% against an African average of 16%, the Central African government intends to raise this level with several projects. The extension works of the Boali 2 plant have just been launched thanks to the financial support of the African Development Bank for an amount of 23 billion FCFA to have 10 megawat more.

Central African energy will also benefit this year from another 10 megawat that will come from the installation of a thermal power plant with financing from the Saudi fund. This project includes a public lighting component for 14 avenues in the city of Bangui. The executory phase of the work is also planned for the second semester, the contract being already awarded.

"We will continue with the support of our partners to invest heavily in energy infrastructure, very important for our development," said the head of state Faustin Archange Touadera on March 30 on the occasion of his year 3 in power.

African Development Bank approves strategy for Central Africa – “crucial for the economic integration of the region”

https://africandailyvoice.com/en/2019/04/15/african-development-bank-approves-strategy-central-africa-crucial-economic-integration-region/

2019-04-15 Central African Republic, POLITICS

Johannesburg, South Africa (ADV) – The Board of the African Development Bank (AfDB) on Monday approved the Central Africa Regional Integration Strategy Paper 2019 – 2025, adopting the Bank’s multinational operations in Central Africa over the indicated period, African Daily Voice has learnt.

According to a statement issued by AfDB, the Central Africa Regional Integration Strategy Paper (RISP) for 2019 – 2025 builds on the lessons learned from the implementation of previous regional development initiatives. It also lists the Bank’s plans to accelerate intra-regional trade, inclusive economic growth and structural transformation of the Central African region.

“It will guide the Bank’s regional operations in seven member countries of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), namely Cameroon, Chad, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and the Central African Republic – a combined population of some 130 million people,” reads a statement Chawki Chahed, Chief Communications Officer, Communication & External Relations Department, African Development Bank.

“The cooperation, integration and economic development goals of the 2019 – 2025 Central Africa regional strategy will be achieved from the basis of two pillars: the first strengthens regional infrastructure (focusing on electricity networks, transport and ICT), while the second supports reforms for intra-regional trade development and cross-border investments and builds the institutional capacity of regional organizations, especially ECCAS and the Economic and Monetary Community of Central Africa (CEMAC).”

Ousmane Dore, Director-General of the Bank’s Central Africa Regional Development and Business Delivery Office said in 2018, the GDP growth rate in Central Africa doubled to 2.2 % from 1.1% in 2017, but remained below the sub-Saharan average of 3.5%.

“The region’s growth was driven primarily by global commodity prices, principally oil. Other countries within the ECCAS region continued to grapple with the vicious circle of instability and fragility, weak human and institutional capacity, and infrastructure deficits in the transport, energy and ICT sectors.

“Central Africa has significant oil resources, deposits of precious metals and minerals, huge transboundary water resources, and the continent’s greatest hydropower potential. Implementation of the Central Africa integration strategy will encourage regional and national authorities to ensure that cross-border programs and initiatives are embedded into public resource planning and administration,” said Dore.

The bank further stated that implementation of the Central Africa RISP will require investments amounting to US$ 4.421 billion, corresponding to 30 regional operations over the seven-year period. About 88% of the planned funding would be devoted to strengthening regional infrastructure. The infrastructure and institutional capacity-building components of the plan will also support the resilience of the countries in the region. Specific operations will also strengthen resilience to food insecurity, enable the socio-economic reintegration of vulnerable groups, and conserve ecosystems in the Congo Basin.

“The African Development Bank’s ongoing support for Central Africa is crucial for the successful economic integration of the countries in the region. The new Regional Integration Strategy Paper continues this tradition of supportive interventions in critical economic sectors. Ultimately, it will be a huge boost to intra-regional trade and a much needed structural transformation of the policy and business environment,” said Moono Mupotola, the Bank’s Director of Regional Development and Regional Integration.


The RISP is in conformity with the Bank’s new Regional Integration Strategy Framework (RISF) which was approved in March 2018, and the Ten-Year Strategy of the African Development Bank Group (2013-2022). It also aligns with the regional priorities from ECCAS and CEMAC and the Bank’s High 5priorities
