Projects Implemented by REPAOC

  •  “Project in Support for Platform Networks in West and Central Africa”

Since January 2013, as a result of European Union funding and support from an international NGO, ACTED, REPAOC has been implementing a five (5) year project. The project aims at promoting and supporting regular and inclusive multi stakeholder dialogues on key issues through network capacity building activities in two main areas:
- Support to Member Platforms; and
- Advocacy and Communication.

This project is endorsed by ACTED and implemented by REPAOC and REPONGAC in partnership with Coordination SUD and FIP (International Forum of National NGO Platforms).


  • INSARD (Including Smallholders in Agricultural Research for Development)

INSARD is an action research project which aims at ensuring involvement of African and European civil society organizations in the development and implementation processes of development agricultural research policies. It is a three (3) year project which consists in networking implementers, research institutes, farmer organizations, and CSOs through a consortium of European NGOs and African Platforms in three pilot countries: Senegal, Tanzania, and Zambia.

The INSARD project aims at helping define priority issues consistently with the needs and interest of smallholders and at encouraging stakeholders to develop action research projects in terms of family farm development.

The project is funded by the European Union. It started its activities in 2010 and is now in its third year and latest phase. It is implemented in partnership with ESAFF, ETC Foundation, GRET, PELUM Association, and Practical Action.

  • Developing an ongoing political and institutional dialogue between French speaking civil society stakeholders and public authorities to consolidate peace and strengthen the State in West Africa

Since the Busan Conference (South Korea, 2011), REPAOC has been deeply involved in the implementation of the recommendations of the 4th High Level Forum on development effectiveness with a particular emphasis on international dialogue for the consolidation of peace and strengthening of the State. The New Deal, a result of that dialogue, helps operationalize the change of paradigm from aid effectiveness to development effectiveness.

Various workshops have been organized in this respect:
- In March 2012, REPAOC was involved in the establishment of focal points and in the development of a Road Map in Nairobi;
- In October 2012, meeting of focal points in The Hague and launching of the International Platform;
- In February 2013, workshop of French speaking focal points on the implementation challenges and opportunities of  the New Deal held in Lubumbashi;
- In April 2013,  launching workshop of the CSO Platform for the consolidation of peach and strengthening of the State held in Dakar.

In the countries where it is represented, REPAOC has launched a project in partnership with its members (National Platforms, and civil society organizations) for the sake of networking CSOs about the New Deal process.

The New Deal non-treaty countries (Benin, Cape Verde, Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, and Senegal) are not aware of the New Deal Guidebook. As a result decision is made to share this tool with CSO representatives.

The European Union supports REPAOC and the promotion of multi-stakeholder dialogue in West Africa

Since January 2013, the European Union has been supporting REPAOC in its mission to represent and strengthen West African civil society. This collaboration is carried out in the context of a 5-year project in partnership with the REPONGAC (Network of NGO Platforms of Central Africa), ACTED and the IFP (International Forum of national NGO platforms) which aims to promote multi-stakeholder dialogue on topics of general interest in West Africa.


INSARD: Seeing ARD differently

In most developing countries agriculture, which remains the largest economic sector, represents on average 29% of national production and generates 65% of employment. This agriculture encompasses both “modern” agriculture and family farming. In Sub-Saharan Africa, most of the farms are family-run (nearly 80 %) and the sector employs about 75% of the working age population. Despite this important economic and social burden, it does remain an undervalued activity.
