West African Marine Ecoregion project
Introduction to the programme
The project consists of 4 modules and a strong communications element. These modules are:
- Supporting and Creating Marine Protected Areas
- Sustainable Artisanal Fisheries
- Fisheries Access Agreements
- Threatened Species
A comprehensive Communications Strategy has been implemented, with WWF WAMER creating an Environment and Press Group (EPG), which includes journalists and environmental experts.
This group is kept informed of developments and findings, meets regularly, and works on an action plan targeting the communication of specific marine problems, for which each cause has been identified and solutions proposed.
