Porto-Novo, green city: a short report in the Benin capital city

Following the series of workshops carried out in Porto-Novo and as part of the cooperation with Cergy-Pontoise, the Beninese capital has engaged in a program highlighting its natural and cultural heritage to face the climate issues. Ouest-France prepared an article on this topic.

The Workshops organized 6 international workshops in Porto-Novo, as part of cooperation between the Beninese capital and the Cergy-Pontoise urban community. Strategies have emerged aimed at preserving and promoting the lagoon of this delicate territory. The “Porto-Novo green city” program made it possible, with the support of the French Development Agency and the French Fund for the Global Environment, to develop and implement this vision through the development of the banks of this wetland, as of 2015.

The Ouest-France newspaper has returned in recent days to the results of this program and to the transformation of Porto-Novo in an illustrated article, available online.
