The ECOWAS Commission is set to convene a pivotal regional conference in Abuja, Nigeria, on February 22nd and 23rd, aimed at establishing the Economic, Social and Cultural Council for West Africa (ECOSOCC-WA).

Announced through a recent press release on the ECOWAS Commission’s official website, the event is orchestrated by the Department of Political Affairs, Peace and Security (PAPS), with backing from the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA).

The gathering seeks to foster a dynamic regional civil society, collaboratively building the groundwork for a comprehensive citizens’ council.

This initiative is designed to enhance a more inclusive and participatory governance framework across the region, among other objectives.
