Togo’s capital will host a meeting on ECOWAS Education Agency this week

(Togo First) - Lomé will host, this week, a key meeting organized by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). Scheduled for September 6 and 7, the meeting will gather experts from the region’s member States who will review the project to create the ECOWAS Education Agency. 

The meeting will focus on the validation of the feasibility study report on this agency. According to a press release issued by the ECOWAS, the event will be organized through the Human Development and Social Affairs Department of the ECOWAS Commission. 

Participants will look at “the most cost-effective way to set up and manage the ECOWAS Education Agency,” the statement reads. They will explore education strategies and practices in the different Member States of ECOWAS, as well as requirements (infrastructure, equipment, organization chart, personnel, and budget)  to establish the agency.

“It is expected that at the end of this important meeting, relevant recommendations on the establishment and viability of the Agency and the appropriate strategy for resources mobilization will be made.”

The ECOWAS Education Agency project was in the pipeline since 2017. It was brought up during the ECOWAS Ministers of Education meeting held that year.
