2019 ANNUAL CVE CONVENTION
With the year 2018 having come to an end, it is time to evaluate what was done in Mombasa County and plan for the year – 2019. In accordance with the 2018 implementation plan, an annual convention is to be held for this purpose. The annual conference is to bring together all stakeholders and other partners to learn and share experiences on CVE as well as to strategize on future activities. Key issues that featured prominently in 2018 will be discussed with the intention of situating the county in a better position to address emerging issues that have a bearing on the safety and security of the county. Around 300 participants from within and without Mombasa who were involved in the implementation of the action and those who want to learn from the experience of Mombasa will be in attendance. The offices of the Mombasa County Commissioner and Governor of Mombasa will host the annual convention through the support of Mombasa civil society organisations and the private sector. The National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC), which is currently in the process of reviewing the National Strategy for Countering Violent Extremism (NSCVE), will be expected to play a key role of facilitating learning at the annual convention.
