ZOPACAS: 30 years of challenges

Data: 24/10/2016

Hora: 9:15hs to 13:00hs

Venue: RDC Auditorium

In this seminar, our main goal is to reflect upon the 30 years of ZOPACAS and its potential for the coming decades. The modes of cooperation put forward and the ones that can still be established gain a fundamental value in the moment when the Zone enters its fourth decade.

The South Atlantic Peace and Cooperation Zone (ZOPACAS) was established in 1986 by the U.N. General Assembly Resolution 41/11, with the objective of promoting the cooperation for economic development, peace and security, and avoiding the introduction and development of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction in the region. ZOPACAS is composed by 24 countries: South Africa, Angola, Argentina, Benin, Brazil, Cape Verde, Cameroon, Congo, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Equatorial Guinea, Liberia, Namibia, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo and Uruguay.
