President Biden Transmits SPCPS plan to Congress
President Biden Transmits Strategy to Prevent Conflict and Promote Stability 10-Year Plan to Congress
On March 24, 2023, President Biden transmitted to Congress the 10-year plan to implement the U.S. Strategy to Prevent Conflict and Promote Stability (SPCPS) in Coastal West Africa. Guinea, alongside Benin, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, and Togo, has been identified as a priority SPCPS partner.
Over the next ten years, this plan will guide our efforts to develop and implement programs throughout Guinea that focus on promoting peace and stability. It tailors our shared approach to the unique challenges and opportunities facing Guinea and the region, while guiding our efforts across U.S. administrations to deepen local partnerships. These partnerships are key to preventing conflict and promoting stability for the long-term.
The SPCPS plan will be further shaped and implemented in coordination with local partners who can help achieve our common objective of more peaceful, prosperous, and stable Guinean communities. In addition to our bilateral diplomacy, we are going further to work at the grassroots. The SPCPS affords the means and scope to engage broadly with Guinean civil society, the private sector, academia, faith communities, multilateral and regional organizations, and the diaspora.
This announcement represents a significant U.S. investment and serves as an important milestone to support Guinea’s progress toward resilience and a more peaceful future. As Secretary Blinken said, “Those closest to challenges know best where opportunities for peace lie. The new 10-year plans for implementing the Strategy to Prevent Conflict and Promote Stability emphasize forging local partnerships to drive positive change in communities.”
We are excited to begin working hand-in-hand with Guineans to implement the SPCPS in the coming months. Together, we will shape a more peaceful and stable future for the Guinean people.
