The BCLME III Project "Improving Oceans Governance" held a meeting on 28 February this year with project technicians being implemented by BCC and its partners in order to exchange experience and to combine synergies with common objectives
Three Countries Sharing a Productive Ecosystem
The Benguela Current Commission (BCC) is a multi-sectoral inter-governmental, initiative of Angola, Namibia and South Africa. It promotes the vision of the Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem (BCLME) sustaining human and ecosystem well-being for generation after generation.
The BCLME is richly endowed with both living and non-living resources – from large oil and gas reserves to abundant fisheries and unrivalled natural beauty. The BCC provides a vehicle for the countries of the region to introduce an "ecosystem approach to ocean governance". This means that the three countries work together to manage the marine environment.
The BCC was established on January 2007 through the signing of an Interim Agreement. Then, on 18 March 2013, the governments of Angola, Namibia and South Africa signed the Benguela Current Convention, a groundbreaking environmental treaty that entrenches the Benguela Current Commission as a permanent inter-governmental organisation.
