The Fisheries Committee for the West Central Gulf of Guinea (FCWC) under its European Union-funded Improved Regional Fisheries Governance (PESCAO) project has successfully recruited a coordinator for the Regional Monitoring Control and Surveillance Centre (RMCSC).
The RMCSC Coordinator role became necessary to successfully implement one of the key result areas under the PESCAO project: the establishment of a regional vessel monitoring system. The recruitment process began 12 March 2020 and attracted applicants within and outside the region for the role. Mr Godfrey Baidoo-Tsibu began work on 6 July 2020.
Commenting on the successful conclusion of the recruitment process, FCWC Secretary-General Seraphin Dedi stated “we are delighted to have Mr Godfrey Baidoo-Tsibu as the RMCSC Coordinator and remain confident that he will bring his experience and competence to ensure that the objective of monitoring vessels in the region is achieved.”
Mr Baidoo-Tsibu is recruited under the FCWC-PESCAO project and mandated to coordinate activities related to regional MCS Center operation, to establish communication with the Member States, partners, stakeholders and initiatives engaged in the fight against IUU fishing and associated crimes in the FCWC region.
