On the 19 March 2013, the governments of the Republic of South Africa, Angola and Namibia signed the Benguela Current Convention. The Benguela Current Convention is a formal agreement between the three governments to manage the Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem (BCLME) in a cooperative and sustainable manner for the benefit of coastal communities, who primary depend on the ecosystem for their livelihood.
The convention establishes the Benguela Current Commission (BCC) as a permanent inter-governmental organisation with a mandate to promote the long term conservation, protection, rehabilitation, enhancement and sustainable use of BCLME. The governments will work through the commission to ensure that industrial development progresses in an environmentally responsible manner and that they work together to minimize pollution, align maritime policies, laws, regulations, and monitor and manage fisheries in a cooperative manner.
