Background: 

The project is to support ECOWAS and its government and non-government partners in working towards a Hunger-free West Africa, by building on existing policies and programmes, increasing stakeholder engagement and amplifying the current political commitment in the region. It will promote good nutrition, feasible technical solutions to food insecurity and the right to food as the ultimate goal to be reached. As an integral part of this hunger-free initiative, the project will support specific elements of first and third programme of the Regional Partnership Compact for the Implementation of ECOWAP/CAADP and follow-up on previous support to nutrition efforts in the region. A common feature of all components of the project is the need to enhance collaboration of different sectors and actors. The project has a duration of 3 years; September 2013 to December 2016.
