International Women’s Day - 8th March 2019

International Women’s Day - 8th March 2019: the Government of Monaco, through its Office of International Cooperation, supports various development assistance projects for the benefit of women and girls. 


Among these projects, the development of a shellfish and oyster programme in Senegal, in partnership with ICD (Institute for Cooperative Development in Africa). Every day, women risk their lives (36 individuals drowned in 2017) by venturing into high waters to collect and sell oysters and shellfish. By substituting wild harvesting with shellfish farming, the project will ensure the financial and food security of families in the Sine Saloum region, whilst helping to preserve the mangrove.
