Discussion on World Mangrove Day 2022
Discussion on World Mangrove Day 2022

On 26th July, BEDS celebrated World Mangrove Day 2022 together with coastal people of Sundarbans at Dacope sub district of Khulna District. The day was celebrated to raise awareness among the local people on the importance of mangrove and its conservation.

The celebration started with a discussion session about the importance of the day, it’s background story and objectives. BEDS also organized 3 stalls in which one of the stalls was mangrove information corner. Coastal students and local people visit those stalls and observe the different education materials regarding Sundarbans and mangrove.

Total 120 participants were attended the program together with local government body and BEDS team. A community art work event also organized where community specially the students draw their feelings for the mangrove and what can they do for the conservation of mangrove.

After the art work event the team BEDS together with local people took part in mangrove plantation event. Total 1000 mangrove saplings were planted by the participants at the bank of Poshur river. And after the plantation local people also give promise that they will take care of those planted mangroves because these planted mangroves will protect their river embankment.

We would like to thank all our donors for their contribution and faith for us. We are also requesting our donors to start monthly recurring donations. For recurring donation please find the link below;

Mangrove plantation belts are expected to act as natural infrastructural buffers against coastal hazards. But their survivability will not endure if the plantation site design is not appropriate. So, plantation site preparation is a big concern before any kind of mangrove restoration activity.

BEDS (Bangladesh Environment and Development Society) a pioneer organization having good experience in mangrove restoration since 2013.Till now BEDS has planted 3,15,770 mangroves in the Sundarbans coastal region especially at the bank of river.

BEDS always ensure the well fencing of the plantation site before starting the plantation to protect the newly sowed saplings being grazed by the cattle. Even BEDS also put stick against each of the saplings so that the saplings can grow strongly and not being washed away by the strong tidal water. BEDS also motivated the local people to take care of the new saplings they have planted by themselves. And through this type of mechanism BEDS ensure a success of the mangrove plantation.

Mangroves act as a protector for the coastal people but also serve the people of all over the world. BEDS (Bangladesh Environment and Development Society) has been working for restoring mangroves since 2013. Till now BEDS has planted 3,15,770 mangroves in the coastal region of Bangladesh.

BEDS has been planted mangroves for long time. When BEDS started planting mangroves, BEDS faced lots of challenges, saplings mortality rate which was collected from natural sources were almost 80%. Also it affected the natural regeneration process. After that BEDS has started planting mangrove saplings which are raised in mangrove nurseries in poly bag. Root system of the nursery raised mangrove saplings is best and their survivability rate is much higher.

BEDS also use stalking for the planted mangroves to protect the mangroves from displacement due to wind and tidal water. BEDS also fence the mangrove plantation area to protect it from the grazing of cattle’s. BEDS engaged local community in each steps of mangrove plantation and protection and now they are getting benefit from the mangroves. Now the mortality rate is 10%. Local community is taking care of the mangroves by themselves for their benefit.

We would like to thank all our donors for their support for us. We are also requesting our donors to start monthly recurring donations. For recurring donation please find the link below;

Bangladesh a south Asian country blessed with world’s single largest mangrove forest the Sundarbans. Due to global warming and effects of climate change the mighty wetlands is in Danger. River bank erosion due to the loss of mangroves is now the major problems. Coastal people losing their lives and resources.

Initiatives: BEDS (Bangladesh Environment and Development Society) has been working for restoring mangroves since 2013 engaging the local people and youth. This year BEDS have plan to plant more than 200 thousand mangroves besides the river bank of south-western part of Bangladesh specially in Dacope and Shyamnagar sub-district. BEDS motivated the youth generation for mangrove restoration to create a massive awareness among the future generation.

Impact: Almost 25000 mangrove saplings has already been planted at the bank of Poshur river besides Sundarbans with the involvement of youth people and local people. This young generation has started to motivate themselves as well as the local people for mangrove restoration because they started to realize the importance of this initiatives for river bank erosion.

Feedback from the youth: I live beside the bank of poshur river. Due to riverbank erosion we had already lost our land and I don’t want the repeat incidence for my family. BEDS tried to solve our problem and now I am planting mangrove with my friends and family. I feel so pleasure to do this work. And I wish my planted mangrove will protect my family and house.

According to Climate Risk Index 2019, Bangladesh ranks among the 7th most vulnerable nations to the impacts of climate change. The Sundarbans, located in the southwest of Bangladesh, is one of the largest continuous blocks of mangrove forests in the world is trying to decreases the impacts. But now several external factors are threatening the long-term protection of the mangrove forest. Also, the negative impacts of climate change such as extreme weather events and sea level rise putting both peoples’ lives and properties and the ecosystem at risk.

BEDS is a leading non-government organization for Community Based Ecological Mangrove Restoration. As of now, BEDS has restored over 330,270 mangroves covering 30 hectors areas in the Sundarbans region together with local people. Currently BEDS is planning to restore mangroves for the coastal embankment protection of Poshur River under Dacope sub district of Khulna. Maximum of the preparatory works have been completed like; discussion with local people and local govt., site selection, preparation for fencing and most importantly saplings collection. BEDS has been assisting local villagers to establish mangrove nurseries for their extra earning and nature conservation.

One of the women lives beside the bank of river said, “I need mangrove tree the most in my area. previously there was lots of mangrove in this area which protected my tea stall from blowing wind of storm but now it’s an empty embankment and during the storm season most of the time the roof blown away. So, I appreciate the mangrove restoration activity and always try to take participation and also monitor the planted saplings”.
