The representatives of the various technical departments and specialised agencies grouped within the Interdepartmental Committee on the Environment of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) have held their fifth meeting for the finalisation of the draft Regional Climate Strategy (RCS). The main objective of the meeting, which took place on 5-6 April 2022 in Abuja, Nigeria, was to collect the latest observations and contributions from all the Departments of the ECOWAS Commission in order to finalise the draft Regional Climate Strategy.

The meeting was the culmination of an inclusive and participatory process initiated at the beginning of 2021 by the ECOWAS Commission, with the technical and financial support of the GCCA+ West Africa project funded by the European Union and implemented by Expertise France.
