Banjul, The Gambia, 29 July 2019 –The African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) and the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR)  held a meeting in Banjul, Gambia with the purpose of establishing a roadmap defining future collaboration between the two institutions. The meeting sought to put in place a methodology to implement the Memorandum of Understanding which was signed between the two on 3 May 2018. Member of APR Panel Honourable Brigitte Mabandla and Special Rapporteur on Gender at the ACHPR Dr Lucy Asuagbor represented the institutions. The meeting which took place on the sideline of ACHPR’s 26th Extra-Ordinary Session noted the different areas of collaborations highlighted in the MoU and underscored that Gender is a cross cutting issue. It was agreed that the plan of activities on Gender between ACHPR and APRM will not only contribute to promoting the impact of both institutions on Human’s and People’s Rights but more importantly it will contribute to the overall realization of Aspiration 3 of Agenda 2063 aiming for “An Africa of good governance, democracy, respect for human rights, justice and the rule of law”.

The meeting concluded with a confirmation that the ACHPR will table the proposed plan of cooperation between APRM and ACHPR on the 30th of July 2019 at the 26th Extra-Ordinary Session where the Commission is also expected to nominate a focal point whose mandate would be to conduct Gender related activities in close collaboration with the APRM.
