This project, led by the Conservation Society of Sierra Leone in partnership with GREENLIFE West Africa, motivates youths in Sierra Leone for community-based mangrove conservation. It uses sustainable livelihood initiatives to restore degraded marine ecosystems, engaging young people in environmental stewardship.
Beyond the protection of mangroves in the Community Biodiversity Conservation Area of Bouche du Roy, the project will help to improve the living standards of the local communities, while promoting sustainable use of the ecosystem, environmental education, and ecotourism.
This project aims to create, protect, restore and manage at least 2,088 ha of mangrove forest across three sites on the north-western coast of Madagascar. Having already completed a pilot phase, the project is now looking to accelerate and upscale activities with an aim to start selling carbon credits.
Terra Global is structuring a project to conserve > 16,000ha of mangrove forests on the Zanzibar islands of Pemba and Unguja.
The Wildlife Conservation Society is working with Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute in pioneering a project aimed at generating carbon credits from seagrass beds in Kenya.
