Hen Mpoano - Our Coast, Our Future

SustainaMetrix recently hosted a training session in partnership with the University of Rhode Island Coastal Resources Center. The three day program in early February was designed to discuss and apply the methods being introduced by the Integrated Coastal and Fisheries Governance Initiative. These include the ecosystem approach, examination of long term trends, analysis of the existing governance system, techniques for assembling a baseline as a reference point for future change and framing strategies for achieving a desirable future in a specific place. A total of 26 participants came from the Coastal Resources Center/ ICFG team, Friends of the Nation, Government of Ghana, SustainaMetrix, the Universities of Cape Coast and Ghana, Environmental Protection Agency, SEMA and several District Planners from the Western Region.
