The EANC Policy comes from a deep understanding of AFAR traditional values and principles of our region, as well as a profound respect of the universal principles of Rule of Law, Democracy and respect of Human Rights.
As indigenous peoples we must define our own form of Governance, as well as our own customary laws and traditions. This collective perspective represents the Afar people’s right to leverage their land and resources as collective assets.
With control of resources in the Afar region of Eritrea under federal status, the control of the sea, minerals and resources we chart a new beginning for the Eritrean Afar People that will co-exist and promote the diversity of Eritrea while advancing as a civilization.
