The postponement of the 11th Tana Forum
September 21, 2023

Dear Tana Forum partners, colleagues and families,

It is with regret that the Tana Forum Secretariat, IPSS, informs you that the 11th edition of the Tana High-Level Forum on Security in Africa scheduled to take place on 13 – 15 October 2023 at Bahir Dar, Ethiopia under the theme “Africa in An Evolving Global Order” has been postponed to April 2024 due to unforeseen circumstances. This decision was taken after careful deliberation between the Tana Board, Ethiopian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Tana Secretariat.

Thank you for your continued support. It is our hope that this postponement will assure our stakeholders and partners that the Secretariat is in close consultation with the Tana Governance and host country to ensure the success of the Forum.
