Abidjan - The Convention for Co-operation in the Protection, Management and Development of the Marine and Coastal Environment of the Atlantic Coast of the West, Central and Southern Africa Region, known as the Abidjan Convention, its partners and the representatives of the countries within the area of the Convention, started on Monday, September 3, in Abidjan, a workshop aiming at drawing up action plans for the implementation of one existing protocol and three additional ones.

These protocols are (i) Integrated Coastal Zone Management; (ii) Environmental Norms and Standards for Oil and Gas Exploration and Exploitation activities; (iii) Sustainable Mangrove Management; as well as the one on Pollution from Land-Based Sources and Activities.

The three-day workshop which gathered some 45 participants was an opportunity to develop action plans for each protocol and engage in the transposition process of these protocols into national laws. It also defined the necessary outlines of communication in order to raise the awareness of all stakeholders on their implication and define roles for each stakeholder.

The meeting was held with the presence of Mme Kaba Nasseré, Chief of Cabinet, representing the Ivorian Minister of Environment and Sustainable Development, Mr. Seka Seka Joseph.
