We created this course to benefit vulnerable coastal communities to mobilize local actions to reduce the velocity of rising sea levels and extreme weather patterns to the extent possible with simple, natural protection tested over millions of years. The hope is that it will be an impetus to trigger increased activities in needed action at a time of existential challenges in small states surrounded by rising oceans.
The courses will provide all necessary guidelines for implementing large-scale mangrove restoration and rehabilitation projects. It will share technical know-how and practical experiences from the experienced planters in WIF’s projects. We will introduce applicable procedures and methodologies to get carbon credits from a certified body. Based on our ten years of project implementation, we will share how to implement projects on coastal environment conservation, its bio-diversity, and the example of vital livelihood projects to benefit poor communities.
