WIOLAB project Sustainability Strategy

The marine and coastal environment, and the goods and services it provides, are under threat in many regions of the world. Some of the world’s most valuable coastal and marine ecosystems are to be found in the Western Indian Ocean (WIO) region. The WIO States, having recognized the urgent need for better and more effective management of their coastal and marine resources, developed and approved the WIO-LaB project, under the umbrella of the Nairobi Convention (NC). The broad goal of this project is to contribute to the environmentally sustainable management and development of the Western Indian Ocean (WIO) region by addressing the land-based sources of pollution that have adverse impacts on rivers, estuaries and coastal waters, as well as their biological resources.
