Coordination between International and Local Levels-Saran Daraba Kaba

In this video Saran Daraba Kaba shares with ISSAT her experience on international-local coordination. She emphasizes the importance of communication strategies and the key issue of communication channels especially when it comes to the African continent.

Saran Daraba Kaba is the founding President of the Mano River Women's Peace Network (MARWOPNET). Since its founding this organisation has played an important role in promoting women’s rights in the sub-region of the Mano River (Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone).

MARWOPNET has helped bring leaders of the three governments back to negotiations in 2001 and served as a signatory to Liberian peace accords in 2003. Throughout those efforts, the network has struggled to ensure that women's voices are heard and strived to support the implementation of Security Council Resolution 1325 related to women and their role in conflict resolution and sustainable peace building. MARWOPNET has received the United Nations Prize in the field of Human Rights for 2003.

Saran Daraba Kaba is Guinea’s former Minister for Social Affaires and vice President of the Guinean National Council for Civil Society.
