March, 1st 2021- The Abidjan Convention, together with its partner the African Marine Waste Network (a project of the Sustainable Seas Trust) and other partners is pleased to invite you to the series of webinars we are organizing on Plastic Waste Management in the region. Under the European Union funded program “Capacity Building related to MEAs in ACP Countries Phase III (“ACP MEAs”)” the objective of the webinar series is to provide the region with a regional framework against the plastic pollution issue. The countries will build on that to develop their proper national action plans.
The 1st webinar will take place this 2nd March 2021 via ZOOM, an online platform (flyers attached). This series of webinars is of paramount importance not only for the Abidjan Convention region but for all stakeholders involved in the preservation of our oceans, coasts and even inland.
Please join us and also circulate the information within your respective networks.
Maria Lessner, Ambassador representing the Swedish government expressed her joy on this major achievement for the country and emphasized on women active participation: “the inclusion of women is very important in this project and is in line with the priorities of the Swedish government”.
