Climate Change Adaptation Plan Launch Report

The Climate Change Adaptation Plan builds upon a climate change vulnerability assessment and options analysis conducted at the onset of the WA BiCC program and adapted over the past five years in response to new information and changing needs. It is a tool to test the implementation of the Abidjan Convention Protocols on Sustainable Mangrove Management and Integrated Coastal Zone Management to facilitate climate change adaptation planning and interventions in the Sierra Leone Coastal Landscape Complex, generating valuable lessons for the other coastal countries of the region.

Report on the Workshop on Climate Information for Adaptation Planning (Liberia)

As part of its Component 2, “Increase Coastal Resilience to Climate Change,” the West Africa Biodiversity and Climate Change Project (WA BiCC) organized a Workshop on Climate Information for Adaptation Planning aimed at strengthening the capacity of Liberia climate change adaptation experts to generate and use climate information for adaptation planning. The workshop was held in Monrovia, Liberia on December 17–20, 2019, and gathered 20 participants representing climatesensitive sectors.

Intensive Training Camp on Permaculture Practices in Humid Tropical Areas and Creation of a Permaculture Farm School in Taï, Côte d’Ivoire

Fourteen beneficiaries from communities around Taï National Park attended a training course on permaculture and good farming practices between March 21 and April 9, 2020. The objective of this training was to teach them new, more sustainable and environmentally friendly farming techniques such as producing their own seed, compost and organic pesticides, good soil preparation, etc.

Cartographie des zones côtières basses d’Afrique de l’ouest

Même si l’élévation du niveau de la mer et le changement climatique menacent les régions côtières à l’échelle mondiale, il est difficile de prévoir les impacts de ces désastres écologiques sans glaner davantage d’information à l’échelle locale. Inciter les parties prenantes à prendre des mesures pour faire face au changement climatique et à en atténuer les impacts peut être complexe lorsque la menace est difficile à saisir. Dresser la cartographie des régions susceptibles d’être touchées par les changements d’ordre écologique peut permettre d’expliquer les impacts projetés de la montée du niveau de la mer (SLR), du changement climatique, comme le caractère urgent des mesures.

Mapping West Africa’s Low Elevation Coastal Zones

Although sea level rise and climate change are threatening coastlines around the world, it is difficult to plan for the impacts of these ecological disasters without more information at a local level. Spurring key stakeholders into action to combat and mitigate climate change can be a challenge when the threat is intangible. Mapping the areas potentially impacted by ecological changes can help communicate the projected impacts of sea level rise (SLR), climate change, and the urgency to take action.

West Africa Marine Turtle Assessment Report: Current status, gaps, and opportunities for strengthening marine turtle conservation in West Africa

This report presents an assessment of the current status and trends of marine turtle conservation in West Africa, and recommendations for a regional network to promote the protection of marine turtle species and their habitats. It builds on previous studies supported by the USAID-funded WA BiCC Program such as the “Scoping Study on Addressing Illegal Harvesting of Aquatic Endangered, Threatened or Protected (ETP) Species for Consumption and Trade” and country-level illegal wildlife trafficking assessments, as well as initiatives such as IUCN’s December 2018 meeting in Grand-Bassam, Ivory Coast, which recommended the creation of WASTCON.

Au fin-fond de la jungle: une mission de secours à Kabiti

Nous partageons cette belle terre de l’Afrique de l’Ouest avec de nombreuses espèces végétales et animales importantes, sur terre comme dans les plans d’eau. Hélas, les peuplements et populations de nombre de ces plantes et animaux diminuent rapidement à cause des activités nuisibles des hommes. Une de ces activités est le trafic des espèces sauvages, au titre duquel les gens retirent illégalement des espèces de leur habitat naturel pour les vendre. « Au fin-fond de la jungle » donne un aperçu du trafic des espèces sauvages et des effets du vol de ces animaux de leur milieu naturel.
