African Monitoring Observatory on Climate, Waters, Earth, and Cultures (AMOClimWEC)

AMOClimWEC aims to: - contribute to the monitoring of climate, water, earth, and cultures to increase agricultural productivity; - promote a sustainable agropastoral policy for food security;

Presence in: Benin, Burkina Faso, Niger, Togo
Focus: Environmental Justice

This year, we are the initiator of the digital campaign “Benin without Glyphosate” which received 1000 signatories in 10 days in Benin and forced the government of Benin to present a press release on the issue : https://secure.avaaz.org/fr/petition/Gouvernement_du_Benin_UNEP_World_Bank_European_Commission_FAO_Campagne_Benin_Sans_Glyphosate/?cZPeLgb&fbclid=IwAR3DEX4POCYLByhhW–2sjvqKfARBB8ZB9FSwiKm5z14vQNm0CmISkuX-qs
This year, we carried out on a personal initiative about ten survey of decision-making aid to the policies in the field of environmental pollution and sustainable food. We also carried out a clean flood risk mapping in Cotonou in 2018 to help the Beninese authorities to reduce the flood disaster situation.

10,000 young people from 5 continents contributed to it. These are young people from the international community who supported us during our alert and investigation campaigns. Most of them are involved daily with a strong determination. This great networking enabled us to change the parady of the superiority of policies in Africa south of the Sahara. We have 1000 social media information distribution forums.
Our initiative was financed entirely on its own funds. We had huge difficulties in accessing resources during our campaigns.

Since 2010, we are working on the sourcing and accountability initiative. We have published two books and a hundred scientific publications with a dozen disctictions unhooked for our social impact.
We have published books:
– Agriculture in North Benin is threatened by climate change: https://www.editions-ue.com/catalog/details//store/fr/book/978-620-2-26490-7/l%E2%80%99agriculture-au-nord-b%C3%A9nin-est-menac%C3%A9e-par-le-d%C3%A9r%C3%A8glement-climatique
