United Nations Environment Programme: Supplementary provisions on pollution caused by accidental spills of harmful substances in the marine and coastal environment including offshore hydrocarbons. The first version of the Abidjan Convention does not include provisions on accidental pollution resulting from shipping or disposal of hazardous waste, chemicals and harmful substances, including the performance of oil exploration offshore. The last two decades have been marked by a significant increase in these types of pollution, especially pollution from oil spills caused by offshore oil facilities in waters of many States party to the Convention and a regular occurrence of similar Oil Spills from many oil tankers crossing the geographical coverage of the Convention. In light of the risks facing the marine and coastal area, it is important to pay attention to this issue. It would therefore be appropriate to include in the new version of the Abidjan Convention, special provisions on marine pollution caused by oil spills and hazardous waste and substances, toxic chemicals as well, etc..

The expansion of AFRICOM in Africa under Obama: A Paradox? In classic Orwellian juxtapose, Obama’s AFRICOM strategy appears to echo “War is Peace” and “Ignorance is Strength.” In his presidential campaign a few years ago, Obama personified change and hope which granted him a Nobel Peace Prize even before he had started working for world peace in earnest. Yet his message is constantly being undone. Contrary to expectations, AFRICOM, a Europe-based military platform for advancing the US’ strategic interest in Africa, has secretly expanded its presence in Africa under the Obama presidency, notwithstanding spirited opposition from African countries opposed to militarization of African affairsafricom
