Paris 4The suggestion of the Director General of the West Africa Institute (WAI), to invite to the Paris Conference, the experts of the GAMMA Program in association with the President of the RISC Consortium was validated. Together, they will address issues related to climate change, the protection of oceans, the environment and biodiversity. In fact, Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are particularly vulnerable to these phenomena, which are particularly harmful for the development of agriculture, livestock, fisheries and tourism sectors.
