The Mami Wata project

The marine and coastal environment of Western, Central and Southern Africa is particularly rich in terms of productivity, biodiversity and ecosystem services provision, but at the same time under significant pressure from multiple human activities including fishing, energy, pollution and infrastructure development. Mami Wata will provide technical and institutional, training-of-trainers and peerlearning

based capacity building for national planners and decision-makers dealing with marine and coastal management, across relevant sector ministries and government agencies and in collaboration with existing regional Centres of Expertise. The project has three national pilot projects in Benin, Côte D’Ivoire and Ghana.
