Training for Parliamentarians in West Africa

The Pan African Parliament (PAP) together with West African parliaments – the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS Parliament) and Inter-Parliamentary Committee of the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) (IPC-WAEMU), organised a three-day training workshop titled Promoting Sustainable Investments in Agriculture: Legal and policy options in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, from 14 to 16 December 2015. More than 40 participants from the three parliaments and invitees from the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) attended the workshop.

The training is part of Phase 2 of the project “Making Agricultural Investment Work for Africa,” and provided legal and political tools to promote responsible and sustainable investment, including model contracts for both the leasing of farmland and contract farming. The training also focused on the implementation of the CFS Principles for Responsible Investment in Agriculture and Food Systems (CFS-RAI) and the new Directives on Land Policies.
