Stakeholders engagement, knowledge and communications on coastal zone management in West Africa

The project aims at setting up a process that leads to local level ownership of public policies and promoting sound coastal management practices in Benin, Ivory Coast, Togo and Ghana. CAD, together with WE&B, is responsible to develop the communication strategy to generate stakeholder’s engagement and to produce the relevant communication materials to foster knowledge sharing among them. To achieve the goal of the project, cases studies, a Communication and Awareness Plan, and Guidance Notes are developed by CAD and WE&B. A knowledge-sharing event is also organized to ensure knowledge transfer.
