CRC works in some of the least developed countries in East and West Africa — Tanzania, Senegal, Ghana and The Gambia. In these countries, we have a variety of projects that support coastal communities and their inhabitants who rely on healthy coastal and marine resources for income, food and trade. We are working to strengthen the capacity of governance at the local, regional and national levels to develop workable solutions to specific threats and challenges such as food security, overfishing, mangrove deforestation, deterioration in water quality from coastal development and climate change impacts. Our programs on participatory, ecosystem-based fisheries co-management, climate change adaptation, livelihoods development, gender equity and the linkages between population, health and environment are all helping to build the capacity of coastal communities and national governments to sustainably manage critical coastal ecosystems.
