Story: Mohammed Abu,Accra

The partnership between the Abidjan Convention(ABC) and the West Africa Biodiversity and Climate Change (WA BiCC) has been very instrumental in helping the Convention fulfill its  core mission.  The support has led to  strengthening the convention’s collaboration with organizations who share similar mandates with it namely:  the Economic Community of West Africa States (ECOWAS) the Mano River Union, and the World Bank West Africa Coastal Areas Management (WACA) Program.

Further, this partnership has facilitated the implementation of several activities and helped put in place essential tools, such as a regional policy on integrated ocean management and additional protocols on Integrated Coastal Zone Management and the Sustainable Management of Mangrove Ecosystems, thereby strengthening ABC’s  role as a major player and making us the go-to experts on ocean governance, fisheries management and fisheries issues, risks assessment and sustainable coastal development.

These were revealed by the Executive Secretary of the Abidjan Convention Secretariat, Mr. Abou Bamba (AB) during an interview in the Ivorian commercial capital of Abidjan.
