The Network of Central Authorities and Prosecutors of West Africa Against Organized Crime (WACAP) is a network of judicial cooperation made up of focal points from the 15 countries of the Economic Community of West African States (CEDEAO), Mauritania and Chad.
WACAP aims to strengthen operational cooperation and the capacity of international criminal cooperation authorities in West Africa to combat all forms of organised and serious crime, including terrorism.
