Climate Change & Coastal Environment Management

Cognisant of the unanticipated pressures on coasts and the stressed marine ecosystem due to overexploitation of fisheries resources, the FCWC collaborates with relevant organisations and regional programmes to mitigate the effects of these pressures. We collaborate with regional initiatives such as GMES Africa to enhance the use of Earth Observation services in decision-making and the PESCAO, DEMERSTEM, GREPPAO, CECAF and EAF Nansen projects (funded by the European Union) focusing on stock and sensitive habitat assessments, high frequency fisheries monitoring and ecosystem studies in fisheries.
