The mangrove initiative at the PRCM forum (West Africa)

The 10th edition of the Coastal and Marine Forum will be held from March 29 to April 1, 2022 Saly, Senegal, under the theme of: “the health of the oceans, a sustainable development issue for West African coastal countries”.

An exceptional meeting for sharing between high-level actors working in the field of conservation, the forum brings together national and intergovernmental institutions, scientific institutions, NGOs and financial partners.

Half a day will be entirely dedicated to a side-event “Mangroves” – Protecting and restoring mangroves in West Africa – with the objective of capitalizing on experiences and best practices in mangrove conservation and restoration, in order to guide regional action during the decade of ecosystem restoration. The FFEM mangrove initiative will be presented, as well as the project in Benin.
