About ECOWAP/CAADP

In 2005, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) adopted the Economic Community of West Africa Agricultural Policy (ECOWAP). The ECOWAP defines the principles and objectives related to the agricultural sector, the orientation of agricultural development, and the axes of intervention through which the sub-region exploits its potential to assure sustainable food security in the Member States; decent remuneration for agricultural workers; and expansion of trade on a sustainable basis as much within the region as with the rest of the world.
