First Working Group Meeting: Settlement, Market, Food Security

 

WAF-meeting1

17 March 2011, OECD Conference Centre‌

The first meeting focused on the West African Futures programme’s working hypotheses and methodology. Various thematic studies were launched, including an in-depth analysis of available studies and existing databases. ECOWAS, UEMOA and CILSS were strongly represented, joining Club Members from Belgium, France and Switzerland. This mixture illustrates the Club’s new work method which is based on experience-sharing between West African representatives and development partners. Food security experts from IFPRI-Dakar, UNECA and the WFP also contributed to this working session.
