ECOWAS Conflict Prevention Framework Committee Meets to Assess Progress of Work
The Internal Steering Committee (ISC) of the ECOWAS Conflict Prevention Framework (ECPF) will meet at the ECOWAS Commission in Abuja on Thursday 16th of February 2017 to assess the progress made during the period 2013-2016.

The ISC meeting is also being convened to review, validate and adopt the report of a consultant recruited by Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on a comprehensive evaluation of the operationalization of the ECPF for the period under review which ended in June 2016 while proposing programmatic areas for intervention in the period 2017-2020.

The evaluation of the operationalization of the ECPF was necessitated by the end of the timeframe for the ECPF Plans of Action (2012 – 2017), which captured the programmes and activities of each ECPF Component, the implementing ECOWAS Directorates as well as technical/financial support of Partners.

Apart from validating the report on the evaluation of the operationalization of the ECPF, the ISC will brief all stakeholders on the consolidated Partner Contribution Template for 2016 and discuss the ECPF priority programmes for 2017 – 2020.

Since the last ISC meeting, the ECPF Secretariat has taken steps towards the effective mobilization of financial resources for the ECPF Focal Point Directorates and the development of monitoring strategy for the ECPF reporting process.

The ISC was raised in 2010 to oversee and coordinate the ECPF implementation process within the ECOWAS Commission and with all stakeholders. It is expected to provide direction to all ECOWAS Departments that are involved in the ECPF implementation process, ensuring that synergies between existing and new ECPF Action Plans are created and duly utilized.
