The peace and stability the sub-region enjoyed after gaining independence lasted only up to the late 1970s and early 1980s. Instability afterwards was due primarily to the nature and character of the governance systems and regimes in the Member States. This was evident by the excessive powers wielded by the leaders which suppressed any opposition that challenged such authority.

Accordingly, while the few were getting richer and richer, the majority were living in poverty and deprivation. Marginalization, denial of the majority from participation in national affairs, lack of opportunities for self actualization and the poor state of national development resulted in large scale poverty and dissatisfaction.

Taking into consideration the resource base of the sub-region, the potential for collaboration to ensure economic development and integration is extremely vast. Additionally, this pillar has the greatest potential not only to reduce poverty, but to also improve the well-being and living standards of the population.

This pillar will therefore deal with issues related to food security, taking into consideration the global food crisis and its impact on the sub-region, trans-boundary forest and water basin management, trade promotion and industrial development, sustainable exploitation and management of the mineral resources, development of energy and power, transport infrastructure and telecommunication to fully support economic growth and development. For most of these programmes, a sub-regional approach will be adopted guided by the growth triangle/growth area concept.

The health and education infrastructure and systems of the Member States of the Union, especially Liberia and Sierra Leone, were severely devastated during the civil conflicts. It is estimated that 60-75 percent of the health and education infrastructure in these two countries were left in a state of disrepair, a large number of medical personnel lost their lives and tens of thousands sought refuge within and outside of the sub-region thus making access to medical services minimal or almost impossible, as well as prohibitive due to high costs, especially in the rural areas. Capacities to provide desired medical services in facilities that are operating leave much to be desired.
