Prof Osho engages ECOWAS on FANRPAN’s role in West Africa

The Chairperson of the FANRPAN Board of Governors is on a mission to ensure that FANRPAN is truly a continental network. Having started in the southern and eastern parts of Africa, FANRPAN assumed a continental mandate in 2010, and since then, has seen the addition of Benin as the first West African state to formally establish a node. With the coming in of Prof Osho as chairperson in February 2019, focus has shifted on ensuring that the network serves and supports the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) towards the transformation of their food, agriculture and natural resources policies.

On 15 July 2019, the FANRPAN Chairperson met with the ECOWAS Commissioner for Agriculture, Environment and Water Resources, Mr. Sékou Sangaré and his team, consisting of Messrs Ernest R. AUBEE, the Head of Division of Agriculture; Salif Djibrill Sow, the Senior Technical Assistant  PAGR – SANAD who is in charge of Monitoring and Evaluation and Institutional  Strengthening; and Dr Amadou Tall, the Team Leader on Regional Fisheries in West Africa (PESCO). The Abuja meeting centred on the future role of FANRPAN in the west Africa region.
