This briefing was supposed to have taken place at the margins of the UN General Assembly in New York last October , but it was not held due to the busy schedules of the ambassadors and the minister during the Assembly.

On Tuesday January 24, 2017 , Dr. Kamara  will represent Sierra Leone at the UN High-Level Dialogue on Building Peace to be held at the UN General Assembly.

The UN  has announced that “In recognition of the fundamental interlinkages between the 2030 Agenda and Sustaining Peace, the President of the General Assembly will convene a High-level Dialogue entitled “Building Sustainable Peace for All: Synergies between the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustaining Peace Agenda” on 24 January 2017 at UN Headquarters in New York, with the participation of the President of the Security Council, the President of the Economic and Social Council, and the Chair of the Peacebuilding Commission. ”

“The dialogue will include an opening session, a high-level segment, an interactive panel discussion on ‘Taking a comprehensive approach to sustainable development and sustaining peace,’ and three workshops on: Empowering women, girls and youth for peace and sustainable development; Addressing the root causes of conflict for peace and sustainable development; and Strengthening transparent, inclusive and accountable institutions for peace and sustainable development.”

Sierra Leone’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Adikalie Foday Sumah and other high-ranking diplomats in the Mission will attend the briefing and the High-Level Program.
