FileBenguela Current Commission FactSheet by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Dec 08, 2014 09:33 AM
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.

FileStrategic Action Programme for the Benguela Current Commission (2015-2019) by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Dec 08, 2014 09:21 AM
The TDA provides the technical input for this document – the BCC Strategic Action Programme (SAP). It scales the relative importance of the transboundary problems and proposes practical preventative and remedial actions, in the form of policy actions, to help achieve the sustainable integrated management of the BCLME. The SAP is supplemented by an Implementation Plan, an operational document that details the activities required to implement the policy actions. In 1999, the BCLME community developed a first TDA and SAP and in 2013 it repeated the process to produce updated and improved documents with an accompanying Implementation Plan. This SAP (for the period 2015 to 2019) has been formulated to reflect the objectives, principles and functions set out for the BCC in the newly signed Benguela Current Convention, the policy framework that now guides the BCLME community. It addresses the challenges to the BCLME and outlines implementable policy actions that aim to resolve the transboundary environmental issues, address key threats and their root causes, and enhance sustainable development opportunities within the BCLME.
