Training Seminar for the Members of Renabec

The Félix Houphouët-Boigny Foundation for Peace Research is organizing in partnership with the National Network for the Well-being of Drivers (RENABEC) and the O.S.E.R (Road Safety Office) a training seminar for road transport professionals from July 22 to 24, 2020 in Yamoussoukro. This seminar will focus on the theme: “The commitment of road transport professionals in favour of security, peace and the respect of barrier measures related to the covid-19 pandemic, for a peaceful electoral environment in Côte d’Ivoire”.

As a peace institution, the Félix Houphouët-Boigny Foundation for Peace Research is resolutely committed to accompanying the road transport world in the search for solutions to the many problems that shake it to the point of causing permanent conflicts between customers, transporters, trade unions and other actors on whom the efficiency of the Ivorian road transport system depends.

Since March 2020, Côte d’Ivoire, like other countries, has been facing an unprecedented health and security crisis linked to the covid-19 pandemic. From this crisis situation have emerged barrier measures imposed on the population to cut the chain of spread of the coronavirus, plunging the entire country into precariousness. However, the year 2020 is marked by general elections in Côte d’Ivoire. It is therefore a matter of extending development prospects, taking into account the pandemic, which must be brought under control in a peaceful electoral environment. This approach aims at enabling road transport professionals to assume active roles at the local, regional and even global level.

It is important to promote among road transport professionals skills, competencies, values of peace and attitudes and behaviours that will contribute to the civic engagement of all on the basis of respect for democratic principles, diversity, solidarity and living together. But such perspectives take into account the current situation of the pandemic.

This seminar aims to effectively support road transport professionals to enable them to become proactive field agents contributing to the advent of more peaceful, tolerant, inclusive, responsible and creative societies in the face of hazards and pandemics.
