Project Description
The objective of the West Africa Regional Fisheries Program (WARFP) Project is ‘to support countries to maintain or increase priority fish stocks and the benefits that they can provide to West Africa, with a focus on benefits for poverty reduction and food security’. The AF will add to and scale up activities under the WARFP. Specifically, it will provide for (a) scaled-up community-led fisheries management of coastal sedentary fisheries; (b) additional institutional support for the management of targeted fisheries; (c) further development and implementation of underlying policy and legislative frameworks; (d) strengthening of surveillance efforts and capacity; and (e) further support for regional coordination, communication, and monitoring and evaluation (M&E). The GEF chief executive officer has cleared it for inclusion in the upcoming GEF work program.
