 1.8 Project Summary:
The marine and coastal resources along the 48,000 km of sub-Saharan African coastline are underthreat to a varying degree from the impacts of development-related activities. In particular, coastaltourism contributes to the threats to the coastal and marine ecosystems through tourism-relatedpollution and contamination. At the same time, coastal tourism is often considered the‘environmentally friendly’ alternative to more exploitative livelihood options. Based on the identifiedissues and proposals at the Ministerial and Heads of State meeting in Johannesburg at the WorldSummit on Sustainable Development and the thematic group on coastal, marine and freshwaterecosystems of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development, the project aims to demonstrate bestpractices strategies for to reduce the degradation of marine and coastal environments of transboundarysignificance resulting from pollution and contaminants and associated impacts. The project aims to: (i)capture Best Available Practices and Technologies (BAPs and BATS) for contaminant reduction; (ii)develop and implement mechanisms for sustainable tourism governance and management thatmeasurably reduce degradation of coastal ecosystems from land-based sources of pollution andcontamination; (iii) assess and deliver training and capacity requirements emphasising an integratedapproach to sustainable reduction in coastal ecosystem and environmental degradation; (iv) developand implement information capture, information processing and management mechanisms andinformation dissemination; and (v) undertake cost-effective project management, coordination,monitoring and evaluation. The primary emphasis of the Project is aimed toward on-the-grounddemonstrations which form the major component of the Project as reflected in the substantial fundingfor these elements. The lessons learnt and project relevant information will be disseminated through aproject information exchange mechanism linked to IW: LEARN.
