(Adopted by consensus on 19 October 2002)
Inspired by our respective faith traditions, and the encounters we have had with each other during the Inter-Faith Peace Summit in Africa (14-19 October 2002, Benoni near Johannesburg, South Africa), proceeding from the Johannesburg Inter-Faith Peace Declaration adopted on 17 October 2002, and in order to fulfil the commitments set out therein, we undertake the following plan of action:
The Summit secretariat (The Lutheran World Federation, Geneva) shall:
distribute the list of participants’ names and addresses to all participants, in order to facilitate ongoing communication;
forward a copy of the Johannesburg Inter-Faith Peace Declaration, and this Plan of Action, to the African Union (AU), Southern African Development Community (SADC), Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Inter-Governmental Agency for Development (IGAD), Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), East African Community (EAC), etc., to all African Governments, to relevant faith-based organizations, as well as to all participants; and
write forthwith on behalf of the Summit participants to the parties, mediators and other relevant actors in the current peace negotiations in respect of the situations in Sudan and Cote d’Ivoire, in order to express our prayers and support for the success of these negotiations.
