CGCC organized this workshop to include representatives from the United Nations and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Commission as well as other relevant regional and subregional organizations. It served as a preparatory meeting to build support for a larger, follow-on workshop, scheduled for West Africa in 2010, and included representatives from ECOWAS member states, external partner governments, and nongovernmental experts. Workshop participants discussed counterterrorism and broader related capacity-building efforts in West Africa and focused in particular on the possibility of developing a subregional strategy on counterterrorism and a mechanism for facilitating improved subregional counterterrorism cooperation and capacity building.
