The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is undertaking efforts to accelerate the implementation of their regional agricultural policy, the ECOWAP/Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Programme (CAADP), and its related regional and national investment plans. In that context, ministers of the 15 ECOWAS member states are scheduled to get together from 16 to 20 September for the Agriculture/Environment/Water Resources Specialised Ministerial Committee.

They’ll meet in Lomé, Togo, for the long awaited launch of the Regional Food and Agriculture Agency housed there, which is being created to facilitate the implementation of regional ECOWAP/CAADP initiatives. The ministerial meeting is expected to also validate a select number of major regional programmes to be implemented by that agency, such as the Regional Agricultural Intensification and Pastoral Development Programme, the Regional Market Regulation Programme and the Social Safety Net Programme. Furthermore, the Ministers will review the status of implementation of the ECOWAP/CAADP regional and national investment plans, to identify measures to further accelerate ECOWAP/CAADP implementation at national and regional levels.
