United Nations Economic Commission for Africa - West Africa
The Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) was established by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations (UN) in 1958 as one of the UN’s five regional commissions. ECA’s mandate is to promote the economic and social development of its member States, foster intra-regional integration, and promote international cooperation for Africa’s development.
ECA provides logistical support for cooperation and information networks, which facilitate communication. It supports efforts to eradicate poverty, to promote peer learning and knowledge sharing in a range of development areas.
