This committee also advocates for the Common African Position on the Reform of the UNSC, as outlined in the Ezulwini Consensus and the Sirte Declaration.

The ongoing Intergovernmental Negotiations (IGN) on the UNSC reforms began in 2009 during the 63rd Session of the UN General Assembly. Currently, the UNSC’s permanent members include the United States, the United Kingdom, France, China, and Russia, with non-permanent member positions held on a rotational basis. Africa is currently represented by Mozambique, Gabon, and Ghana.

The African Union selected Kenya, along with nine other member states, including Equatorial Guinea, the Republic of the Congo, Namibia, Zambia, Libya, Algeria, Sierra Leone, Senegal, and Uganda, to lead discussions on UNSC reforms.
