Sustainable management of the Canary Current Large Marine Ecosystem (CCLME)

GCP/INT/985/GFF
“Towards sustainable management of the Canary Current Large Marine Ecosystem" (CCLME) - Medium Size Project

Strategic combination of fisheries and ecosystem governance frameworks

The GEF investment in the CCLME started in 2005 with a preparatory phase that initiated the development of a Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) of the CCLME. The preparatory phase was followed by implementing the “Protection of the Canary Current Large Marine Ecosystem (CCLME)” project from 2010 to 2017. Under this project, the CCLME countries - Cabo Verde, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mauritania, Morocco, Senegal, and the Gambia - prepared and endorsed a Strategic Action Programme (SAP) to address the degradation of the CCLME caused by overfishing, habitat modification, and changes in water quality. The SAP focuses on solutions and management actions for the CCLME that will result in a healthy ecosystem, sustainably managed, providing services and equitable benefits for human well-being by 2030. Implementation of the SAP will address the root causes of concern at various levels by removing key barriers and putting in place a suite of measures based on the implementation of an ecosystem approach to management that can affect real change to rebuild fish stocks, reverse habitat degradation and improve water quality.
