Denunciation

The Regional Coordination of the REPAOC, which guarantees the good functioning and the good running of our network, wishes to inform you that individuals of the "corrupt and corrupt" civil society with empty of easy money use the name of the REPAOC for their own purposes.
Their approach is neither part of the REPAOC action plan nor officially approved by the members of the Board of Directors.
We denounce this anti-political approach which contributes to tarnish the image of West African civil society. The REPAOC is not closely involved in the so-called "Citizen Forum on Democratic Transitions in the ECOWAS, Lomé".

REPAOC establishes it's Thematic Committees

REPAOC has launched a selection process that has enabled it to select democratically five priority thematic areas on which its activities are centred.

Twelve key thrusts were identified including 5 priority themes, following the vote of the platforms members.

The whole process was entirely validated by the Bureau of the Executive Board of REPAOC under the technical guidance of the regional coordination.

The five Standing Committees and the leading National Thematic Platforms which will supervise the work are as follows:
- Democracy, Good Governance, Human Rights and Peace (FONGDD Republic of Guinea)
- Funding local NGOs (FECONG, Mali)
- Agriculture/Food Security (CONGAD, Senegal)
- Environment, Forest Governance and Climate Change (SPONG, Burkina Faso)
- Consultative frameworks and spaces of national and regional dialogue (FONGTO, Togo)

The leading National Platforms were selected according to their organizational and institutional capacities, after receipt of their applications.

Volunteering remains the main principle underlying the relationship between REPAOC and the leading NPFs of the Thematic Committees. However, REPAOC and each leading platform have formalized their working relationship through 5 Framework Conventions.

The objective of the thematic committees is to contribute to:
• Defining the positioning of REPAOC;
• Coordinating the Network on the theme for which they are responsible;
• Monitoring political agendas related to the theme;
• Participating in debates and informing other members of the development of thematic issues.

The works of the Thematic Committees also contribute to strengthening REPAOC’s advocacy plan. The results of the work (studies and research) commissioned by the Thematic Committees is expected to enable to uphold REPAOC’s stances with national authorities and subregional institutions.
