As part of the Unesco Major Interregional Project on Research and Training leading to Integrated Management of Coastal Systems (COMAR), a regional meeting of experts to discuss proposals and strategy for implementation of a project entitled "Regional Project for Training and Research on Coastal Ecosystems of Africa (COMARAF)", was convened at the Unesco/BREDA office, Dakar, Senegal, 18-23 December 1986. The meeting was attended by 31 scientists most of them being from the region.The meeting discussed the project document prepared by the Unesco Division of Marine Sciences and produced recommendations on the objectives, methods and mechanism for the implementation of the project.Discussions were followed by lectures on various subjects concerning the coastal marine systems and related to the project, and a one-day field excursion.The discussions demonstrated that a high interest is existing in the countries of Africa for problems related to the studies and rational management of coastal areas.
