The Forum

The 10th edition of the regional coastal and marine Forum will take place in Guinea-Bissau from 25 to 28 March 2020 under the theme “Healthy oceans: an issue of sustainable development for West Africa coastal countries”.

The Forum provides a unique gathering for experience sharing among high level stakeholders working in the area of conservation, and brings together national and intergovernmental institutions, scientific bodies, national and international NGOs, socio-professional organisations, the private sector (fisheries, tourism, oil and gas development) and financial partners.

Launched in 2009, the Forum is an initiative of the Regional Partnership for Coastal and Marine conservation (PRCM), a coalition of players dealing with issues related to the West Africa coastline.
