A UNESCO Chair in Integrated Coastal Management and Sustainable Development has been established at Dakar University, Senegal

The establishment of a new UNESCO Chair at the Dakar University (Senegal) is under way. Once a UNESCO professor is nominated, in 1997 the first group of students will start attending specialized courses integrating natural and socio-economic approaches. Senegal has the necessary expertise and manpower to provide students with pertinent knowledge on impacts of natural forces and growing population on coastal regions, in Africa and on a global scale. International expertise will also be provided. This Chair, the only one of that nature so far in Africa, will have a sub-regional character.
