West African Perspectives: Challenges for the Cotton Sub‐sector
In recent years the SWAC Secretariat has, through meetings, special events and field visits, held ongoing consultations with a wide range of regional actors on the priority issues facing the cotton sub‐sector in West Africa. This has included governments, regional organisations, NGOs, private sector, producers, etc. Notwithstanding some competing interests and differing perspectives, there is a high degree of consensus among regional actors on the key stakes regarding the issues facing the cotton sub‐sector in West Africa and wider implications for agricultural development. Key points emerging from these consultations merit careful consideration in the development of regional and international initiatives to address the difficulties faced by the African cotton sub‐sector in the years to come.
