Culmination of the gef msp

Culmination of the GEF MSP

The main objectives of this Project are as follows:

 a) to identify areas, sites or living resources of regional and global significance that are suffering measurable degradation (i.e., hot-spots)

b) to determine the sources/causes of this degradation and the associated scales of impact (national, regional and global) ….;

c) to identify areas, sites and resources of regional significance that, although not currently degraded, are threatened with future degradation …..;

d) to determine, through root-cause analysis, the fundamental causes of the damage or threat posed;

E e) to design a programme of interventions … addressing problems of regional priority that may be presented to the partnership conference; and,

f)   f) to present the programme of interventions at the Partnership Conference for the Development and Protection of the Coastal and Marine Environment in sub-Saharan Africa, in order to solicit support for the implementation of the programme.
