The conservation activities that will be implemented within these MPAs concern the capacity building of the MPAs managers, exchange visits between« the same MPAs » on the strategies related to maritime surveillance of the protected areas, the ecological monitoring of the artificial reefs that are submerged, the community awareness on the limits and the zoning of the MPAs,

For a better coordination of the supported activities in the framework of this program, the Secretariat of the RAMPAO works in collaboration with the directorates in charge of the management of the MPAs (DAMCP in Senegal, DPWM in the GAMBIA, the Ministry of Agriculture and the Environment of Cabo Verde, IBAB of Guinee Bissau) and the implementation of the activities will directly be ensured by the managers and the local communities.

The second phase is scheduled and will mainly be attributed to the MPA of Guinea and Sierra Leone so that all the member countries of RAMPAO could benefit from this program which purpose is to foster a dynamic conservation and efficient management of the MPAs in West Africa.
