Civil society play a critical role in complementing government efforts at
national, regional and continental levels. With this conviction in mind,
WANEP, a leading civil society partner to ECOWAS solicited the support of Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC), Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) and Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) through a Joint Financing Agreement in carrying out a project titled “Strengthening the ECOWAS Conflict Prevention Framework (ECPF) through National Architecture for Early Warning and Early Response in West Africa”.
These three strategic partners were honoured during the WANEP General Assembly in appreciation of their unflinching support and commitment towards actualizing WANEP’s vision of a West Africa characterized by just and peaceful communities. WANEP’s goal is to promote peace and security in the region.
Expectedly, the project is focused on supporting and complementing regional efforts of the African Union and ECOWAS in building peace, promoting human security and the overall development of West Africa.
