Covering the 15 countries of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and three Sahel countries, this vibrant and dynamic region has diverse landscapes, from lush forests to one of the largest deserts in the world. Its growing population faces challenges in which collaboration is crucial. Energy access, sustainable farming, resilience to climate catastrophes and youth employment require a combination of solutions to unlock the vast opportunities that the region has to offer -all while dealing with the impacts of the climate crisis.

Practical Action supports change-makers, such as governments, NGOs, donors, and the private sector, with technical advice to offer ingenious solutions to overcome these challenges and help achieve a thriving future for all.
