Humanitarian consequences of organised crimes serious-Veep

Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on Tuesday, January 25, 2022, on behalf of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, participated in the United Nations Security Council Open Debate on War in cities: Protection of Civilians in urban settings, held in New York.

The Vice President at the sitting underscored the fact that the asymmetrical nature of prevailing wars in cities, and the consequent embedding of combatants within interconnected resources and infrastructure of urban areas, poses immense challenges for the protection of civilian populations.

He posited that the humanitarian consequences of increasing urbanised conflicts on civilian populations are serious.

To him, this requires careful consideration of existing frameworks for the management of urban wars.

He noted that, to stem the tide, the world must be decisive in preventing domestic inequalities that lead to urban migration and the creation of fertile grounds for conflict.
