The Kofi Annan Foundation works to promote better global governance and strengthen the capacities of people and countries to achieve a fairer, more secure world. To advance this mission, the Foundation has developed programmes and partnerships in three main focus areas: (i) Peace and Security; (ii) Sustainable Development; and (iii) Human Rights and the Rule of Law.
In partnership with other organizations, the Foundation promotes global food and nutrition security by supporting small holder farmers in Africa, and promoting investment throughout the agricultural value chain. The Foundation also promotes policy and institutional development to advance sustainable development in an era of climate change and achieve the Millennium Development Goals.
The Foundation works in partnership with a number of organizations to address the emerging threats and policy gaps that pose a threat to peace and security. The Foundation provides substantive support to Mr. Annan in his role as the Chairman of the AU Panel of Eminent African Personalities for the Kenya National Dialogue and Reconciliation process. The Foundation also provides a number of services to support Mr. Annan’s mediation and conflict resolution activities.
The Foundation supports Kofi Annan’s leadership and advocacy to promote good governance, respect for human rights and the rule of law.
