(4.) Organisation of African Unity, CSSDCA, Solemn Declaration, AHF/Decl.4 (XXXVI), July 2000.
During 2002, a ministerial review meeting on the conference on Security Stability, Development and Co-operation in Africa (CSSDCA
) which had its origin in the Kampala Document, 1991, stated in a draft memorandum of understanding that by the year 2005 the required infrastructure and capacity for an effective early warning system to deal with conflicts in Africa should be operationalised.
(4) The pursuit of the latter two goals will be facilitated by the Conference on Security, Stability and Development Co-operation in Africa (CSSDCA) and the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD), formerly known as the Millennium Africa Plan (MAP)/New Africa Initiative (NAI).
The AU will have two mechanisms to deal with issues of security, namely the OAU's Mechanism for Conflict Prevention, Management and Resolution (Conflict Mechanism for short) established by the Cairo Summit in 1993 and adopted as an institution of the AU during the Summit of 2001 and the Conference on Security, Stability and Development Co-operation in Africa (CSSDCA) that was also adopted as a process within the framework of the new organisation.
