This workshop is a new step in the formulation process of the second-generation National Agricultural and Food and Nutrition Security Investment Plans.

In other words, the objective of the clinic was to create an opportunity allowing country teams to study and integrate in their NAFSIP_2 documents the analytical results obtained by the group of local experts gathered and supported by IFPRI.

The main objective of the clinic was to help ECOWAS Member States improve the quality of their NAFSIP_2 documents with the integration of scientific evidence through mutual learning and capacity strengthening.
