The West African Regional Political Parties Programme (WARPPP) is a long standing IEA programme that seeks to ensure that the peaceful transition of power experienced in Ghana in 2001 and again in 2009 is replicated in other countries.
Since 2005, WARPPP has undertaken and organised a range of activities involving political parties across West Africa. This has involved:
a series of bilateral meetings to share experiences of democracy;
a Conference held in Accra in May 2007 with the theme Fifty Years of Sub-Saharan African Independence and the Role of Political Parties – Promise, Decline and Resurgence and involving 34 political parties from 15 Sub-Saharan African countries;
a training of trainers programme for for polling agents of political parties in Togo;
a post-election Conference for Sierra Leonean Political Parties and Civil Society with the theme Post-Election Nation Building – The Role of Political Parties.
Details of any future activities under the WARPPP will be provided on this page.
