Welcome to the Horn of Africa – Middle East Peace and Development Initiative

The countries of the Horn of Africa, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia and Kenya, and the Middle East countries, including the Gulf countries, notably Saudi Arabia and Yemen, bordering the Red Sea, the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean at Bab al-Mandab, are important areas for securing world peace and development. This importance comes from the conflict in the Gulf region, which threatens global peace and security by threatening to close the Strait of Hormuz and sever the global economy and international navigation. The source of this importance is also the threat of narrowing or cutting the navigation on the Strait of Bab El-Mandeb as well.

  • Ethiopia plants 350m trees in a day to help tackle climate crisis
    About 350m trees have been planted in a single day in Ethiopia, according to a government minister.

  • Five charts: How climate change could affect peace
    The effects of climate change extend beyond the environmental impacts in a complex intersection with economics, social development and security. The impacts of fluctuating climate conditions on societal stability and its potential to lead to violent conflict is of growing importance.

At the same time, President Trump’s decision to delay retaliatory strikes on Iran for shooting down a U.S. Navy RQ-4 surveillance drone is a wise one. The United States needs to think long and hard before it engages in any form of serious conflict with Iran or uses force in ways that can trigger a serious risk of major escalation on both sides.

Die Länder am Horn von Afrika, Dschibuti, Äthiopien, Eritrea und Somalia sowie Kenia, und die Länder des Nahen Ostens, darunter die Golfstaaten, insbesondere Saudi-Arabien und Yemen, an der Grenze zum Roten Meer, dem Arabischen Meer und der Indische Ozean, sind überaus wichtige Länder für die Sicherung des Weltfriedens und der Entwicklung.
