Challenge

A total of 35% of the mangrove forests have been reduced since 1980s from the world because of excessive human interference and every year 2.1% mangroves are decreasing (Ref: FAO 2003). Sundarbans coastal region is at serious risk of losing its origin due to climate change and diverse human activities. As a result, climate change impact is accelerating the volume of vulnerability of the coastal communities due to shortage of mangroves.

Solution

Throughout this initiative, 20 hectares of mangrove forest will be created by regenerating of 100,000 mangroves together with local people in terms of biodiversity, coastal protection, mangrove-based livelihoods promotion as well as climate change adaptation and mitigation.

Long-Term Impact

Planted mangroves will prevent unwanted migration of coastal people by reducing river bank erosion and protect the community from other natural calamities. So, these mangroves will have social impacts as well as environmental impacts. These mangroves will contribute to reduce the poverty of the coastal people. The community will use dried branches and timber of those mangroves as fuel wood. Once the community will get benefit from it, they will conserve those mangroves for their own betterment.
