CGCC and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Commission cohosted this workshop as the sixth component of a broader effort by CGCC to enhance implementation of the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy in different regions around the world, which includes past projects on southern and East Africa as well as a concurrent assessment of North Africa. The goal of this meeting and the larger project of which it is a part was to identify and prioritize the unmet counterterrorism and related capacity needs of countries in West Africa across the four pillars of the Strategy and strengthen counterterrorism-related cooperation among states in West Africa and between the region and the United Nations.
