Activities The Guinea Current Large Marine Ecosystem (GCLME) Project is an ecosystem–based effort to assist countries adjacent to the Guinea Current Ecosystem to achieve environmental and resource sustainability. This would be accomplished by shifting from short-term sector by sector driven management objectives to a longer-term perspective and from managing commodities to sustaining the production potential for ecosystem-wide goods and services.
The GEF pilot phase included a six country Gulf of Guinea Large Marine Ecosystem project that ended in November, 1999. This new phase extended the Gulf of Guinea Project from six to sixteen countries, all of which are influenced by the Guinea Current. This new Project will assist these sixteen countries in making changes in the ways that human activities are conducted in the different sectors of national life to ensure that the GCLME and its multi-country drainage basins can sustainably support the socio-economic development of the region.
