On the occasion of its 5th anniversary, the Brazzaville Foundation launches its first report entitled "Partnering with Africa" to look back on its actions and project its future ambitions.
Since its creation in 2014 and its registration with the Charity Commission in 2015, the Foundation believes in the enormous potential of the African continent. Its activities over the past five years have underlined its unfailing commitment to promote and support African initiatives in conflict resolution, environmental protection and the improvement of the health and well-being of populations.
Through its partnerships, the Brazzaville Foundation supports the implementation of initiatives and programmes responding to the challenges of the African continent. Discover a preview of a double-page spread of the report, available from January 2020:
Thanks to the work of its Founding President and the eminent members of its Advisory Board, the Foundation is known as a diplomatic player in civil society. "Getting people talking about the irreconcilable", the "Ollivier method's" mantra based on the experiences of the Founding President, guides the peace initiatives supported by the Foundation: inter-Libyan dialogue, hostage mediation and intercultural dialogue.
Biodiversity and species conservation require inclusive solutions involving local communities and support to increase the level of human development in a sustainable manner. In 2016, the Foundation initiated the creation of a Blue Fund for the world's second largest lung, the Congo Basin, and is currently supporting the Congo Basin Climate Commission in its operationalisation. The Foundation also worked in partnership with the NGO Stop Ivory to promote the Elephant Protection Initiative, aimed at stopping poaching and the illegal ivory trade.
The trafficking of falsified and substandard medicines is a serious threat to individuals, families, communities and nations. On the occasion of the Lomé Summit on 18th January 2020, the Foundation launched the Lomé Initiative with the aim of putting in place the necessary legislation to criminalise the trafficking of falsified and substandard medicines on the continent. African governments and other key actors from the public and private sectors and civil society are working together to combat this major public health scourge and provide patients with essential medicines and quality healthcare.
