Extractive Industries & sustainable development: A best practice guide for offshore oil and gas development in the West African Marine Ecoregion




Some of the world’s most valuable coastal and marine ecosystems are found in the West African Marine Ecoregion and these are being threatened by a range of factors – notably fi shing, land-based pollution, coastal development, dam building in river basins, tourism, climate change and, more recently, by a renewed interest on the part of the oil and gas industry. Virtually the whole coastal and marine zones – including hotspots of biodiversity, key fi shing grounds and important tourism areas – have been divided into blocks open for oil and gas exploration. Many companies are looking for oil and gas and one consortium is already producing.
