EU and Germany support the ECOWAS States in the fight against cybercrime

(Togo First) - To help fight cybercrime, the European Union and Germany will provide €7 million to the ECOWAS States. The financing falls under a project backed by the German Cooperation Agency (GIZ) and Expertise France. 

In effect, the funds will be used to reinforce information infrastructure, improve cybercrime laws - in line with regional, continental, and international standards, and train actors engaged in the fight against cybercrime in the region concerned. 

On October 30, 2020, the ECOWAS, the EU, and Germany officially began their collaboration, under the cybercrime component of the West African Response Against Organised Crime (OCWAR). Besides cybercrime, the megaproject also tackles trafficking, money laundering, and terrorism financing. It is set to run through 2022-2023.
