Due to lack of information and communication, the successes are not well known and the failures are often repeated. Such dissipation and scattering of resources and energies undermine actions undertaken.
The Hubs goal is to assist West and Central African stakeholders (States, Inter-governmental Organisations, Civil Society Organisations and Development Partners) to promote coherence in rural development programmes worldwide. The Hub provides advisory support, expertise information and promotes consultations on issues concerning rural development and food security.
The hubs activities are centred on six themes (agricultural policies, land policies, climate change, bioenergies and rural development funding) .
The mains servives are :
- Information: to list and share development experiences
- Advice: to provide free high-level expertise
- Dialogue: to establish links between the rural sector agents
