WHERE: Inter-Continental Nairobi, Kenya.
BACKGROUND: The APRM Summit was initially scheduled to take place in Kigali, Rwanda on the sidelines of the African Union Summit which took place last month. But a Postponement was necessitated by unavoidable circumstances related to the Heads of State and Government Retreat on AU Financing which coincided with the APRM Summit dates.
The August 2016 APRM Special Summit will focus on the revitalization of the Mechanism and strategic approaches that will see it regain its rightful place as an effective and innovative governance tool for our continent. Recommendations from a special committee tasked to work on the revitalization strategy will be discussed and considered for adoption.
This Special Summit will also discuss Country Review Reports for Djibouti, Chad and Senegal.
Members of the press are therefore advised to send their passport numbers (including Bio Data) and passport photos to [email protected] before 15 August in order to facilitate the accreditation process. Printing of badges will be one at Charter Hall. For APRM statutory meetings badges will be printed at the APRM desk.
