ECREEE organizes second Media Workshop for Francophone ECOWAS Countries

The ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) is organizing a two-day media workshop for journalists on issues relating to renewable energy and energy efficiency in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire from 12th  – 13th April, 2018.

The objective of the 2-day capacity building forum is to provide an opportunity for ECREEE to update the media on their program of activities. The forum will also provide an opportunity to enhance the capacities of the media personnel in reporting and writing for the renewable energy sector and overcome the challenges experienced in reporting on the implementation of ECREEE’s policies and programs.

As part of the program, the journalists will also take part in the ECOWAS regional validation workshop for pre-feasibility study on Business Opportunities for Women in a Changing Energy Value Chain in West Africa. This will undoubtedly help the media better informed and help filter ECREEE’s core policies, interventions and successes down to the grassroots, thus boosting the promotion of renewable energy and energy efficiency.

Journalists from eight francophone countries in ECOWAS member states namely: Niger, Togo, Guinea Conakry, Senegal, Cote D’Ivoire, Mali, Burkina Faso and Benin are expected to participate in the workshop.
