Encouraging Start of WARO Activities

UCLG-Africa’s West Africa Regional Office (WARO) has had an active quarter. The WARO team, headed by Mrs. Juliet Mekone provided support for the Covenant of Africa Mayors who gathered all in Cotonou, Benin, from 8 to 10 September 2016 during the Pre-COP22 Forum of African Local and Regional Authorities.

The Covenant of Africa Mayors ratified the Cotonou Declaration, making several recommendations to be presented at COP22 in Marrakesh.

Other activities of the WARO also took place while UCLG Africa Secretary General, Mr. Jean-Pierre Elong Mbassi was visiting Ghana, which included facilitating sessions at Cities Alliance African Strategy workshop. Discussions also took place between the Secretary-General and the Minister for Local Government and Rural Development Mr. Julius Debrah Collins Dauda and Deputy Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Mr. Emmanuel Agyekum.
