West Africa Civil Society Institute Strengthening Civil Society


1st Annual West Africa Civil Society Conference

West African Civil Society constituency represented by WACSOF and WACSI collaborated to bring together civil society organisations, institutions in governance, development partners and other relevant stakeholders to strategise and design a Post-2015 regional development agenda framework that would take into serious consideration the ECOWAS regional development agenda.

This meeting was convened under the theme “Strategizing for the Post-2015 and ECOWAS Vision 2020 Development Agenda for West Africa”.

The overarching goal for convening the first West Africa Civil Society Conference was to bring together civil society organisations and actors across the West Africa region to assess how West Africa has fared in the global conversation on Post-2015; identify linkages and gaps in the new goals vis-à-vis the regional development agenda—ECOWAS Vision 2020—and jointly contribute to the two development visions from the civil society perspective.
