The strong inter-state linkages between coastal ecosystems along the West African shoreline call for a coordinated and integrated approach to climate change adaptation, development planning and resource management in the littoral zone, as coastal areas continue to attract major economic and demographic growth. NDF’s activities contribute to the collective response needed to address the above-mentioned challenges and threats.
