Research Grants Program

The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), through the intermediary of the Regional Agency for Agriculture and Food (RAAF), based in Lomé, and with the financial support of the Agence Françoise de Development (AFD) is currently inviting the national, regional, or international organizations to conduct innovative projects favoring improved food and nutrition security in West Africa.

The “Innovative Operations for Food and Nutrition Security” initiative falls under the implementation of the ECOWAS common agricultural policy (ECOWAP). It aims first to develop the competitive fund management capacities of the RAAF, responsible for ECOWAP implementation, and second to stimulate the development of innovative practices in the field of food and nutrition security within the ECOWAS region.
