Monitoring of Coastal Vulnerability and Coastal Change Trends in West Africa

The eoworld project in West Africa provided important assessment of the vulnerability of West African coastal areas to climate change and erosion. The chosen test sites were located in Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal and Gambia, Cotonou (Benin) coastline and Lagos (Nigeria). The assessment included analysis of past changes (10 to 20 years) due to erosion (coastal change maps) and changes in sea level height.
