The Declaration on “Enhancing UN-AU Cooperation: Framework for the Ten Year Capacity Building Programme for the AU” (A/61/630) was signed on 16 November 2006, by the then United Nations Secretary General, Kofi Annan, and the Chairperson of the African Union Commission (AUC), Alpha Oumar Konaré. Building on previous agreements between the United Nations and the AU (or its predecessor the Organization of African Unity (OAU)), the Declaration aims at enhancing cooperation between the United Nations and the Africa Union in their areas of competences and in conformity with their respective mandates. It was agreed that the Framework for the Ten Year Capacity Building Programme for the AU (TYCBP-AU) should be used for UN system-wide engagement with the AU on the basis of the latter’s needs and strategic priorities.
