Le PRCM organise un panel à l’occasion de la « Journée mondiale de l’océan », le 8 juin 2016.
Comme vous le savez, les changements climatiques, la pression immobilière et l’action de l’homme constituent une sérieuse menace pour le littoral sénégalais et ouest-africain notamment. Les conséquences économiques, sociales et environnementales sont réelles (érosion côtière, accaparement des terrains, surpêche…).
Le PRCM a ainsi invité le Réseau des Parlementaires pour l’Environnement au Sénégal (REPES) et l’ONG Green Sénégal à s’exprimer sur ces problématiques, notamment sur la loi littoral, la politique d’aménagement du littoral et l’érosion côtière.
Le panel sera composé de :
– Ahmed Senhoury, Directeur du PRCM.
– Cheikhou Oumar Sy, Député et Secrétaire du REPES.
– Woré Gana Seck, Directrice de l’ONG Green Sénégal.
Spanning Cape Verde, the Gambia, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Mauritania, Senegal and Sierra Leone, the coastal and marine zone of PRCM is of strategic interest for many economic activities and nearly half of the 35 million people living in these countries. In these countries, the littoral is home to major urban centres and significant activities, such as fishing, tourism or hydrocarbon exploitation and mining. As a result, the littoral is under considerable pressure, with often conflicting and difficult to understand interests. To lessen this pressure and related threats, common actions must be taken at the global, regional, national and even local levels.It is in this context that stakeholders in the ecoregion, mindful of the need for a common approach to issues such as the conservation of the littoral and the sustainable management of its resources, hope to provide joint responses under the Regional Partnership for the Conservation of the Coastal and Marine Zone of West Africa.
PRCM is governed by an evolving membership Charter that sets the rules and criteria for becoming a member.
