West Africa Civil Society Institute Strengthening Civil Society


Consultative Meeting of Experts on Civil Society Capacity Development in West Africa

Civil society continues to face human, administrative, funding capacity challenges which stifle their efforts to complement development initiatives of governments within the West African region. The failure of the sector to perform optimally is partly attributed to lack of robust knowledge management systems, communities of practice and poor documentation of experiences.

In response to these challenges, the West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI) supported by the East-East Partnership beyond Borders of the Open Society Institute and the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA) convened a consultative meeting of experts to proffer solutions, broker ideas, explore innovative thinking and exchange experiences that would address critical issues related to civil society capacity development in the sub region.

The meeting took place at the  Secretariat of the West Africa Civil Society Institute.
