Center for Democratic Development-Ghana and Strengthening Parliament Monitoring Conference


In June 2021, with the support of the Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening (CEPPS) and the National Democratic Institute (NDI), the Ghana Center for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana) convened a network of West African Parliamentary Monitoring Organizations in Accra, Ghana.

This conference, entitled “Strengthening Parliamentary Monitoring Organizations (PMOs) in West Africa to Enhance Parliamentary Openness, Inclusive Policies, Transparency and Responsiveness” sought to build the capacity of local PMOs in West Africa and launch a regional network of PMOs for sustained learning and coordination. On the last day of the conference, the groups present voted to continue this network beyond this engagement and are currently putting into action the learnings from the four days spent together in Accra.
