HOTSPOT of multiple stressors: Research-based management of Gulf of Guinea (HOTSPOT) (39522)

Project Details

Description

Gulf of Guinea is a hotspot of multiple stressors such as marine and maritime pollution, climate change and overexploitation of aquatic resources. At the same time millions of people depend on clean seafood for their livelihood. 

The overall aim of the HOTSPOT project is to contribute to the development of research and management of marine and maritime pollution in the Gulf of Guinea. This will be obtained by identifying pollution sources, developing management actions to mitigate pollution and building up knowledge capacity.
