Die Lösung

Spanning across an area of 350,000 hectares in the Sindh Indus Delta Region of southeastern Pakistan, the project works with local communities to restore what has been lost of the mangrove forests in the region. In partnership with multiple stakeholders including the Sindh government, the project ensures that 5,000 neighbouring households are directly supported and participate in the planting of the planned quarter of a million hectares of mangroves in the area.

Die Auswirkungen

By the end of 2020, 75,000 hectares of mangroves were already planted in the project area, with the aim to continue at the same rate with the same success. Community members are trained and employed as mangrove stewards, with priority given to women. The replenished mangroves help to ease coastal erosion and buffer against climactic impacts such as storms and rising sea levels. In addition, the project aims to make the villages’ main income source – fishing – become more sustainable.
