Summary: To cope with the loss of aquatic biodiversity, PAEDE (Program to support Arable and Livestock Farmers for Local Development) formed the local community in sustainable techniques of agronomy and aims to raise the political, administrative and traditional awareness. The goal is to adopt fishing regulations, to incorporate coastal areas in protected areas and to facilitate the adoption of a law for their management.

To share the wealth of global knowledge on the  aspects of Integrated Ocean Management (IOM) with the 22 countries of the Abidjan Convention’s region, the Mami Wata project takes advantage of existing IOM solutions that have been successfully implemented already. The Blue Solutions presented here are part of and featured on the Marine and Coastal Solutions Portal on the PANORAMA platform. These solutions are being contributed by a broad range of providers from across the planet.
