Introduction


Background


From 17


19 September 2012, some 60 key stakeholders in West African disaster management gathered in
Dakar, Senegal, for a 3 day workshop on the topic of Disaster Law. The delegates consisted of senior level DM
officers, Red Cross and Red Crescent representatives and representatives of the humanitarian community in West
Africa

(see participants list in Annex 2)
.
The event was attended by the media (see Annex 3 for an overview of
media reports).


The event took
place as a collaboration of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
(IFRC) and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

In
2010
the IFRC and ECOWAS
signed
a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to strengthen their c
ooperation.
As a direct result of this increasing
cooperation, the present workshop was designed to assist to make best use of the IDRL Guidelines, the pilot IDRL
Model Act and related norms for international disaster assistance in the West African context
. In addition, the
participants were asked to explore the possibility of using legislation to empower communities in the field of
disaster risk reduction (DRR).

Workshop objectives




Provide an overview of existing international norms related to facilitation and regulation of international
disaster response.



Develop a shared understanding of pote
ntial legal problem areas in international disaster assistance and of
key international norms and tools, particularly where they apply in East Africa.



Develop a common plan of action for the participating States and ECOWAS with regard to better legal
prepa
ration for international disaster assistance at the national and regional levels.



Explore the possibilities for ECOWAS to develop tools and agreements relating to IDRL and DRR.



Generate
i
nput and suggestions for a ‘DRR Checklist for Lawmakers’.

Day 1:
International Norms in Disaster Response



1.1

Opening Ceremony



Mr. Abdul Azize Diallo, President of the Senegalese Red Cross Society


Mr. Diallo’s

speech highlighted the need to rationalize national resources in order to develop and
promote effective disaster management laws. Mr. Diallo emphasized the need for dialogue between all
levels of government and Disaster Management stakeholders.


Mr. Momod
ou Lamin Fye, Regional Representative for West Africa, IFRC


Mr. Fye noted the many challenges and disasters prevalent in the Sahel region. He emphasized the
need to make use of the lessons learned in the workshop, and use these to generate change at the
n
ational level when the participants return to their home countries. Mr. Fye asked the participants to see
it as their duty to promote and propagate disaster law, and welcomed the
opportunity

to exchange ideas
and practices at the workshop.


Mr. Alasan Seng
hore, Director of Africa Zone, IFRC


Mr. Senghore

noted several issues relevant to the African continent, notably climate change and the way
this requires adaptation, especially regarding the mix of different types of disasters prevalent in Africa.
He informed the participants that the IFRC has over 70 s
mall and medium scale operations ongoing on
the continent, such as supporting national societies on food security and epidemics. He also
emphasized the strong need for a legal framework to facilitate international disaster relief, and ensures
timely and ef
fective response.

Mr
.

Senghore requested all participants to analyse how their own
countries deal with disaster law, especially in the context of cross
-
border disasters, and to consider how
these laws should be developed or created to ensure impact and ef
fective cooperation with neighbours.


Dr. Daniel Eklu, Director for Humanitarian Affairs, ECOWAS


Dr. Eklu informed the participants that he was encourage
d

by the level of participation, especially at a
time when ECOWAS communities are experiencing disast
ers, which are leading to further issues such
as internally displaced persons. Dr. Eklu noted the importance of improving the level of response, noting
that a lack of international law and regulation makes coordination difficult. Dr. Eklu closed his speech

by
informing the participants that ECOWAS are preparing to roll out a code of conduct on humanitarian
issues for the region, and that EC
O
WAS would like to incorporate the IDRL
Guidelines

into their own
documentation.


Mr. Mar Lo, Director of Civil Defence
, Government of Senegal


Mr. Lo, speaking on behalf of the Senegalese Minister for the Interior, welcomed all

the participants to
Senegal
. Mr. Lo noted that the workshop presented the ideal forum to share and learn about the
international norms in disaster

law and the tools put forward by the IFRC, and noted that the Senegalese
government is acutely aware of the issues at stake and accords them the highest priority.


1.2

Introduction to Disaster Law and Recent Developments in Africa


Sanne Boswijk (Disas
ter Law Coordinator for Africa, IFRC) introduced the urgency to address the area
of international disaster law in Africa. Of particular interest were several pertinent examples of how
regulation can actually prevent international disaster relief, for examp
le delays to Swiss search and
rescue teams arriving in Japan after the tsunami of 2011, and administrative complications delaying
flights carrying food to the Horn of Africa in 2011. Ms. Boswijk outlined activities of the Disaster Law
Programme in several
African countries, such as Sierra Leone, Rwanda, Namibia and Mozambique, as
well as IFRC’s collaboration with the African Union, ECOWAS and SADC in this field of law.


1.3

International Norms in International Disaster Response



4

Mr. David Fisher (Disaster Law Programme Coordinator, IFRC) provided an overview of the major
international instruments that govern disaster law, drawing out the key international and regional
examples and explaining their content and relevance.
Although t
here is not general disaster
management treaty, there are international legal instruments that address elements of disasters. Hence
,
the Tampere Convention on t
he use of telecommunication in d
isasters was
addressed
, as well as
annexes in the Istanbul and K
yoto customs agreements that address import of humanitarian goods. Of
note is the AU Convention for
Protection and Assistance of Internally Displaced Persons (
IDPs
) in Africa,
also known as the Kampala Convention, which is not yet in force but which forms a significant example
of international treaty relating to disasters in Africa. However, overall the international legal framework
does not address common regulator
y barriers adequately. The IFRC has developed the
Guidelines

on
the domestic facilitation and regulation of international disaster relief and initial recovery assistance

(also
known as the ‘IDRL Guidelines’) and the
IDRL pilot Model Act

to support governme
nts in preparing their
legal systems for international disaster response cooperation.




1.4

Introducing the fictional disaster scenario

Mr. Mohammed Ibrahim (HEAD, DRR Unit, ECOWAS) led a presentation that introduced the
participants to the fictional coun
try Zaland, which is hit by monsoon floods. This fictional disaster
scenario, which would form the basis around which the participants would analyse and discuss the
issues raised in the working group sessions. Participants were encouraged to ‘think like a
lawyer’ and to
use the resource materials to support answers, rather than relying on common sense.


1.5

Working Groups Session 1: Initiation and Entry of International Relief


This session focused on

international instruments governing requests and offers

for assistance, and the
problems international actors may

encounter at customs.
Participants were asked to use the legal
instruments available to argue for

and against a reluctant Government having an obligation to make an
international appeal for assistance if it does not have the capacity to respond on a national level. In
addition, a set of questions addressed

the legal instruments governing the entry of
relief
personnel and
specific
items

such as radio equipment
.


1.3

Regional solutions to regulatory issues in international disaster cooperation


Mr Momodou Lamin Fye
(IFRC)
introduced the topic of discussion for the afternoon, and introduced the
members of

the panel, who were Ms. Brigitte Eno (
African Union
), Dr.
Daniel Eklu

(
ECOWAS
), and Mr.
David Fisher (IFRC).


Dr Daniel Eklu provided the participants with a

comprehensive

overvi
ew of ECOWAS instruments
relating

to disaster response and a history of ECOWA
S’ involvement in this regard.

Brigitte Eno
outlined

the African Union organization
, the coordinating role it is taking up in the oversight of Disaster
Management in the continent,
as

well as the key instruments it is developing in relation to Disaster
Management on the continent, such as the African Humanitarian Policy Framework and the Kampala
Convention.
David
Fisher
focused on
regional cooperation in Disaster Management
elsewhere i
n the
world, looking at examples
from

the European Union, the Americas and Asia
-
Pacific to draw out
interesting approaches.


The panel then heard questions from the participants, and
a lively discussion ensued,
which
centered

on
how regional instruments ar
e implemented into national legislation and the means to ensure
that states
follow this process. Particular attention was given to

Article 4 of the African Union’s Constitut
i
ve Act
which
in
very grave
circumstances
may
allow
for
intervention in disaster si
tuations without consent from
the affected state
.


Day 2: Disaster Laws in the Domestic Sphere


2.1

Lecure and debate: International Actors in the Domestic Sphere


Sanne Boswijk (IFRC) introduced the issues that governments should anticipate once
international
humanitarian actors enter the territory of the affected state. These issues, such as regulatory aspects of
obtaining legal personality, opening bank accounts, security, insurance, monitoring of the quality of aid
and coordination with domest
ic authorities. It is recommended that governments grant certain facilities to

5

international actors to avoid these issues, however, such facilities should only be granted on the basis
of eligibility and a constant monitoring of the quality of assistance.


2.2

Working Groups Session 2: International Actors in the Domestic Sphere


This session

was designed to improve the participants’ understanding of the regulatory issues that can
arise once international actors enter the domestic sphere, such as registra
tion requirements

and

recognition of professional qualifications

of foreign medical staff
,
as well as distribution of foreign
medication
. Participants were asked to consider recommendations or solutions available under the IDRL
Guidelines or Model Act.


2.
3

Lecture and Debate: Civil Military Cooperation

Laurent Dufour (Humanitarian Affairs Officer, UN OCHA) gave the participants an introduction to the
challenges of civil
-
military coordination from a humanitarian perspective, drawing on his experience with
U
N OCHA.

H epaid special attention to the use of military and civil defence assets in disaster response,
focusing on the norms set out relating to this in the Oslo Guidleines on
on the Use of Foreign Military
and Civil Defence Assets In Disaster Relief
.


2.4

Working Groups Session 3:
Protection Issues
in Disaster R
esponse


This
aimed
session
to familiarize the participants with issues surrounding the protection of internally
displaced persons (IDPs) during natural or man
-
made disasters, and to inform parti
cipants of some legal
issues that relate to housing and property restitution for IDPs.

In the fictional scenario, the government of
an affected state is attempting to cut
off aid to any displaced persons outside its designated relief camps

for economic rea
sons
.

A second question asked participants to consider whether it is right for a
government to treat different types of home owners (e.g. renters, owners, those who cannot produce
ownership documentation) differently, and whether or not this could be disc
rimination.


2.5

Panel and discussion: D
omestic
Solutions to Regulatory B
arriers


Ms.
Cosmotina Jarret
t

(Legal adviser, Sierra Leone Red Cross Society) led a presentation on the IDR
L
pilot project in Sierra Leone, which

focused on relevant details from the pilot project, including an
analysis of the strengths and weaknesses and the ‘lessons learned’ from the project
.
A particular
strength of the project, and a reason for its success, was the way in which the project meet
ings
improved collaboration between the government and other stakeholders.
Ms Jarrett emphasized the
effectiveness of establishing an inter
-
departmental platform for information
-
sharing.

In terms of
challenges
, the lack of public sensitization was cited, a
s well as the need for further work and capacity
-
building to ensure that stakeholders have the relevant tools and guidelines at their disposal. Ms Jarrett
emphasized the need for some form of monitoring and evaluation and the need for research to be
publis
hed and disseminated to the widest possible audience.


Day 3: Improving Disaster Laws in West Africa


3.1

Table Top Discussions per delegation: improving instruments regulating and facilitating
humanitarian assistance in West African states


T
he participants
were
urged
by David Fisher (IFRC)
to capitalize on all the
useful
work carried out over
the past two days, and not to lose the momentum gained. As such all participants were asked to gather
in national delegations and to develop the followin
g:


1.

A National Level Action Plan, to cover the next steps after the workshop, which should include
other stakeholders at the national level; and

2.

Comments on how ECOWAS should progress and develop on the issues covered at the
workshop, and specific observat
ions as to how ECOWAS could improve their offering.


Following discussion in the delegations, all participants reconvened in plenary and each delegation put
forward its Action Plan and recommendations for ECOWAS. The details of each delegation’s proposals
,

recommendations and

commitments are set out in the Appendix

1 to this Report. The

overriding themes
of
the plans were
ensuring full reports back to governments, ensuring sensitization and capacity
-
building

6

in the area of disaster law, and
analyzing domest
ic legislation and applicable international instruments in
order to feed into projects to develop more robust domestic legislation.


3.2

Working Group Session 4: Key regulatory issues in Disaster Risk Reduction / Developing a DRR
Checklist


David Fisher
(IFRC)
led a presentation which introduced the participants to both international and
domestic norms in the regulation of disaster risk reduction (DRR), and gave an overview of instruments
,

such as the Hyogo Framework for Action of 2005,
and indicated

the
key areas in national legislation
where further regulation
may be useful

for DRR purposes (e.g. national building laws, gaps in
community
-
level participation).

Mohammed Ibrahim
(ECOWAS)
then led a presentation on regulatory
issues in DRR in the context of
the ECOWAS Commission, providing a
n

overview of key terminology
and trends experienced in West Africa and the justification for a regional regulatory instrument covering
DRR and disaster management for West Africa.


The two presentations provided the parti
cipants with useful background for the final working group
session of the workshop, which
consider
ed

the aspects of DRR to which an effectively implemented
legal framework adds most value, with the objective that the participants will be able to more clear
ly
identify priorities for lawmakers.

Each working group was asked to consider a list of different aspects of
DRR (ranging from EWS to community education and awareness) and to rate them from 1 to 10
according to how necessary it is to provide legal regula
tion for each a
rea

(where 1 means that the area
can do well without legal regulation, and 10 means that legal regulation is essential for the area).


Overall the final working group session of the workshop enabled reflection on the extent of legal
regulati
on necessary to meet DRR objectives, and showed that although the participants thought legal
regulation was important, there were differences of opinion as to where exactly this regulation should be
applied. The IFRC is
currently conducting a global resea
rch project in
the area of legal regulation of
DRR at the moment, and hope
s

to provide
a
‘DRR Checklist for Lawmakers’
.


3.3

Closing Ceremony


The workshop was brought to a close with concluding remarks

and words

of thanks

from D
r
.

Stephen
Omollo

(Head of Delegation and Permanent Observer to the AU, IFRC), Mr
.

Christophe Martin (Head of
Regional Delegation, ICRC), Dr Daniel Eklu and Mr
.

David Fisher.

For the final segment of the closing
ceremony, each participant received a certificate of completi
on for the workshop.
