What we do on land has a direct impact on our oceans. Activities on land—such as development, pollution, deforestation, and more—place enormous stress on our oceans, putting our health, jobs, and ecosystems at risk.

The GEF-funded WIOSAP project strives to reduce land-based stresses by protecting critical habitats, improving water quality, and managing river flows.
WIOSAP is funding several demonstration projects in the Western Indian Ocean region, with the aim of developing best practices that may be implemented elsewhere in the region.
