Spotlight on Coastal Areas of West Africa

The West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) hosted an official launch workshop earlier this month, which discussed the erosion and adaptation projects in the coastal areas of West Africa.

The workshop took stock of the main cross-sectoral issues at the local, regional and international scales, presented the main axes and intervention modalities and examined the prospects of West Africa Coastal Areas Management Program (WACA) for the benefit of coastal countries of the region.

The event was followed by a meeting of ministers and representatives of environment and other ministries from Benin, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Mauritania, Nigeria and Togo.

More than 60 institutional, technical and financial partners participated in the workshop, including the Nordic Development Fund (NDF), the World Bank, the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), the West African Economic and Monetary Union (UEMOA), the Economic Community for West African States, the Convention for Cooperation in the Protection, Management and Development of the Marine and Coastal Environment of the Atlantic Coast of the West, Central and Southern Africa Region (Abidjan Convention), the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and the African Development Bank (AfDB).
