About West Africa Regional

West Africa’s tremendous resources—human, agricultural, and mineral—are dogged by political instability, poor governance, environmental degradation, disease, extreme poverty, and lack of private investment opportunities. To combat these challenges, USAID’s West Africa Regional Mission, located in Accra, Ghana, implements innovative regional activities to address trans-boundary issues, as well as activities in countries where there is no USAID mission.

Since West African countries often face the same problems, regional activities are designed to complement and enhance country-specific programs. We support regional development in agriculture, energy, trade, governance, environment, health, and stability.
