 Stability in Mano River Union Region Tied to Situation in Liberia, Security Council Workshop Concludes
The current situation in the Mano River Union subregion was indeed cause for concern, as the escalating violence in Liberia was overshadowing the recent successful gains in the Sierra Leone peace process.
MARTIN CHUNGONG AYAFOR (Cameroon) said that the Mano River basin was one of the most unstable areas on the planet, and he appreciated the solidarity extended by the international community to the countries of the region.
The Mano River Union States should be encouraged not to support rebel activities in neighbouring countries, and the international community should support their peaceful initiatives.

Earlier this month Mano announced that it had discovered a new kimberlite body on the Kpo licence in western Liberia which is the second of the three countries that make up the Mano River Union in West Africa.
It is quite clear that Mano River’s policy of focusing on these highly prospective, but unexplored countries is now paying off in spades and the directors reckon that the region has the potential to develop into a world-class diamond, gold and iron ore mining province.

The Mano River Union (MRU) came into being on 3 October 1973 when President Siaka Stevens of Sierra Leone and President William Tolbert of Liberia signed an economic co-operation pact at Malema, a small town on the Mano River in Sierra Leone.
The MRU Declaration made provision for other West African countries to join the Union and, subsequently, Guinea became a member on 25 October 1980.
The Heads of State thus decided to rejuvenate the Union in order to enable it to attain its objectives of socio-economic integration and security by establishing a political consultation mechanism for security and reconciliation matters.

 Political Activities For The Attainment Of Peace And Development In The Mano River Union Basin
Perhaps if the social, economic and political conditions in the Mano River basin were qualitatively different, the conflict that started in Liberia would not have spread so fast in the Mano River basin with nearly the same impact in every country within the basin.
Therefore governments within the MRU were vulnerable, perhaps without knowing it, because of the illusion that the strength and survival of a government depend solely on its military capability.
The way to change the orientation of civil society groups within the MRU basin from being perceived as pro-government or anti-government to being perceived as pro-people or people centered organizations is for the MRU civil society movement to embark on a vigorous process of providing political education to the people about governance in a democracy.

 TLP: Mano War
The Mano River Union was established in October 1973 under the Mano River Declaration — initially between Liberia’s President William Tolbert and Sierra Leone’s President Siaka Stevens.
Unfortunately, almost 30 years later, the Mano River Union has instead become synonymous with the interlocking conflicts that have devastated those countries and continue to undercut hopes for development.
While the European Union (EU), UN and regional powers have all officially announced a policy of “a regional approach” to tackling the war, the international community has largely failed to unravel the interconnections and linkages between what is a single conflict — a continuous narrative of gradually intensifying regional fighting driven by power politics.
