Honorary President of ROPPA visits ECDPM


We had the pleasure to welcome Mr. Mamadou Cissokho, Honorary President of the Regional Farmers’ Organisation in West Africa (ROPPA) in our Brussels office on 12 May 2016.

We had the opportunity to discuss our long-standing ROPPA-ECDPM partnership. One of the topics on our agenda was about providing inputs into the upcoming meeting of the EU – Africa Network of Economic and Social Stakeholders which will take place in Nairobi, 6-7 July. This meeting will have a particular focus on the access of family farmers and other agricultural socio-economic actors to climate change financing. We also discussed inputs into the debate on the future of ACP-EU relations after the expiry of the Cotonou Agreement in 2020 and, last but not least, the ongoing review of the ECOWAS Agricultural Policy (ECOWAP).

We thank Mr. Cissokho for his enriching visit and we look forward to continuing our collaboration with ROPPA on these and other topics.
