Annual Report 2007

2007 witnessed WACSI consolidate itself as a viable institute positioned to support civil society’s work in West Africa. The response of civil society actors to the institute’s mission and mandate validates the accuracy of the vision for the institute as conceptualised by the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA). WACSI in many ways has been born at a critical time. Civil society actors in West Africa have come of age and there is consensus that civil society is an important partner in governance, democratisation and development.
