The Guinea Current LME

The Gulf of Guinea is rich in petroleum resources, fishery resources and marine biological diversity. A large human population inhabits the coastal zone of the Guinea Current LME and is heavily dependent on the lagoons, estuaries, creeks and inshore waters surrounding them.

The 16 West and Central African countries that share the resources of the Gulf of Guinea have made a substantial commitment to change the way that human activities are conducted in the region.

This with a view to ensuring that the GCLME and its multi-country drainage basins can support the socio-economic development of the region in a sustainable manner.
