Launch of the Mauritanian platform on oil and gas activities management

A platform of Mauritanian stakeholders involved in the management of offshore oil and gas activities was created on 7 December 2018 following an experience sharing and consultation workshop organized by the Ministry of Environment, with the support of BIODIVERCITES and the collaboration of the PRCM and GIZ. 

Coming within the framework of the MAVA-funded project “Building stakeholders’ management capacities”, the workshop provided an opportunity to bring to the same table a variety of stakeholders intervening in the sector, notably from public administration, the private sector, research institutes and civil society. At the end of the workshop, a roadmap outlining the next activities of the platform was adopted. Recommendations were also put together with a view to the improved management of offshore oil and gas activities.
