Exhibition on non-indigenous marine species of the Luanda Bay, showcasing the environmental and socio-economic impacts derived from their introduction.
Stakeholder meetings to raise awareness about conservation issues in the Luanda Bay.
Visits to local schools to offer formal classes and develop informal activities (games and quizzes) related with the biology and conservation of marine species, harmful algal blooms, and non-indigenous species.

Institutional capacitation

Develop a curriculum at the PhD level in natural sciences, specialization in marine sciences (3/4-year). This program will be offered by the Universidade Agostinho Neto and the University of Algarve and aims at attracting international students from other African regions.

Intensive courses on biodiversity surveys (RAS), data analysis (e.g., R tools), ecological modelling (Ecopath with Ecosim), and observational oceanography (e.g., satellite remote sensing).

Disseminate the project’s results at international and national conferences and seminars.

Contribute to scientific support in the area of ecosystem monitoring methods and indicators, based on the publication of a series of science-indexed articles and the preparation of comprehensive publications under the LUANDAWATERFRONT logo, to be jointly developed for by all project partners.
