The Nairobi Convention, Western Indian Ocean Marine Science Association (WIOMSA) and Birdlife
International are organizing a meeting of the Consortium for the Conservation of the Coastal and
Marine Ecosystems in the Western Indian Ocean region (WIO-C) to be held on 06 September 2019 in
Seychelles.

The meeting seeks to bring together WIO-C members to discuss on how to strengthen WIO-C’s
support to the projects under the Nairobi Convention and also complement and create synergies with
other initiatives in the region in working toward sustainable management of WIO coastal and marine
ecosystems. This will in turn support countries towards the attainment of Sustainable Development
Goal 14 on conservation and sustainable use of oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable
development, and its targets.
