Cadre Africain de Cooperation Civilo-Militaire (CCCM, English: African Framework for Civil-Military Cooperation) is a human rights organisation created in Burkina Faso in 2012 in order to promote peace, security and good governance in Africa.


It has the following objectives:

  • To prevent conflict wherever possible, and participate in their peaceful resolution when not.
  • To participate in emergency humanitarian aid operations.
  • To contribute to the police and gendarmerie's work in security issues.
  • To participate in peacekeeping operations via integrated support to UN and African Union missions.
  • To assist with electoral observation and facilitation in Africa.
The CCCM works in Africa to help promote international humanitarian law and non-violent dispute resolution across Burkina Faso. It trains political actors and civil society and works to ensure free and transparent elections, as well as regular activities involving civil and military contributors. It held a major workshop on international humanitarian law and civil-military cooperation in 2012 in Ouagadougou, including police and military officers, members of the gendarmerie, prison guards and others working in the field.
