The CSF was adopted by the ECOWAS Council of Ministers in December 2015 and is already being implemented; as the 2016 Community Budget was based on the CSF. All ECOWAS Institutions/Agencies are expected to draw their programmes from this framework. The CSF will ensure congruence of purpose and consistency across programmes and across all Institutions/Agencies.
