Summary

We will empower 4 local Pacific Coast community groups in Costa Rica so that they can share their best practices in Mangrove Conservation. These groups will maintain 4 mangrove nurseries for 2 years in order to plant at least 10.000 mangroves that will benefit national Climate Change mitigation and adaptation goals and will serve as a breeding ground for clams, mollusks and other marine species. A healthy mangrove ecosystem will improve participants resilience & quality of life.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Mangroves in Costa Rica face drastic changes due to many causes. The reduction of the original mangrove areas and the degradation of the environmental services they provide directly affects the quality of life of the coastal communities. These communities face lack of opportunities, poor infrastructure and little education services. Loss of mangroves increases loss of productivity from the fishing activity, deepening social and environmental injustice of its inhabitants.

How will this project solve this problem?

Fundacion Neotropica has promoted empowerment community processes in order to address the identified problems. The success of the project includes Local Implementation Units consisting of stakeholder groups from nearby communities. The model is based on the methodology known as "Farmer to Farmer", which creates a team of local promoters belonging to the beneficiary communities. Reforestation will be held by this groups with the participation of students from local public schools. Thanks to you!

Potential Long Term Impact

In the national climate change fight, the conservation of coastal ecosystems and communities participation in management of these ecosystems becomes an urgent action. It is extremely important to enroll all sectors: NGOs, social movements, government, academia, private sector and individuals concerned and committed to conservation. The purpose of this project is to increase sustainability of mangrove forest ecosystems from Terraba Sierpe National Wetlands and Puntarenas.
