comprehensive peace accord took effect in 2007. "DDR remains a process," says Oussou, the first polio survivor to become a Rotary World Peace Fellow. "It takes tremendous time to get the D and D done before even thinking of the R part." Conducting socioeconomic studies is the focal point of the DDR team's efforts. "One of my roles is to think in advance how the excombatants will be making a living after disarmament and demobilization," says Oussou, who is fluent in Baule, English, French, German, and Spanish. "We are a quite sturdy team, in the firing line of conflicting interests, including the Central African Republic government, the politicomilitary leaders, and UNDP itself." Oussou says his parents told him that he contracted polio when he was one or two years old. But he has "long had a strong feeling that with hard work, handicap or not, anyone can succeed." "I could not be more thankful to Rotary International and ICU for providing me with such a great opportunity to contribute to the debate over peace and security in Africa and the world," he says.

Laying the groundwork for lasting peace
By Dan Nixon Rotary International News -- 4 November 2009 The civil war that tore apart Kouame Remi Oussou's homeland of Côte d'Ivoire instilled in him a passion to work for solutions to conflict. Although most of the violence, which broke out in 2002, ended in 2004, the war left his country divided in two. Oussou is now a monitoring and evaluation officer for disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration (DDR) with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in the Central African Republic. His work helps address the needs of a country that weathered periodic civil conflict before a
