Mohamed Omar Djama
Mohamed Omar Djama is a career diplomat. Prior to being the Director of the IGAD Foreign Service Institute (IFSI), he served at different keys positions at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the Republic of Djibouti both in Djibouti and abroad. He served as Councelor of Embassy of Djibouti in Paris.
The creation of IFSI responds to a clear need for training, research and dialogue to support the IGAD strategic objectives on Peace and Security and Regional Economic integration. The Institute will build the capabilities in diplomatic studies and practices across the IGAD region through thematic and sectoral trainings among key change agents and develop a critical mass of change agents that will accelerate the process of regional economic integration.
The Institute is actively building a network of diplomats and civil servants, academicians, experts and researchers across the IGAD region. The priority of the mission assigned to IFSI is to lay concrete emphasis on the training of diplomats and civil servants from IGAD member states to support the process of regional economic integration with the technical knowledge and know-how in this field. These trainings will foster cooperation between member states ministries and increase their coordination.
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to our Executive Secretary for the confidence he placed on me and his strong leadership, our member states and our funding partners for their unfailing support.
