Combining efforts, sharing experiences and knowledge, and finding common solutions are the core functions of the Club. Its Forums aim to:

  • Support West African regional policies;
  • Enrich strategies by sharing experiences from other regions of the world;
  • Promote West African positions and policies in global debates and initiatives;
  • Draw policy guidelines from SWAC work and define roadmaps for their implementation.
