ResilienSEA strives to strengthen knowledge, expertise and build capacities of local, national and regional actors in seven West African countries to improve seagrass protection. The project is locally conducted through the active work of National Implementation Teams (NITs) accross Cabo Verde, Mauritania, Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Senegal and Sierra-Leone.
The NITs have conducted thorough researches along the West African coast to map the presence of seagrasses in the region. In each of the seven countries, the data gathering permitted to define pilot sites where further activities of research, management and capacity-building will be led.
