The Africa Programme for Peace (APP) has been a Danish flagship programme which has made a significant contribution to the development of multilateral African institutions focussed on peace, security, and good governance in Africa since 2004. APP IV, launched in 2018, has continued to contribute to this progress. It has supported the African Union (AU) and Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) in tangible ways, building their capacity on conflict management and good governance, and enabled them to engage in mediation and peacebuilding activities and to support elections.
