Agriculture Colleges and Universities in West Africa recently met at a Workshop to discuss strengthening of their capacity in the ECOWAS sub-region. The Agricultural Colleges and Universities want a stronger role in proposing and implementing Agriculture Policies to support the regional and national governments. In their view, this would enable the region to achieve Food Security and also promote the growth and development of commercial agriculture. Discussions recommended the development of new academic curriculum and training courses to support government officials, private sector and civil society in the development of skills to enhance trade policy and negotiation skills which supports the growth of the agriculture sector within the ECOWAS sub-region.
