Challenge

Mozambique is one of the African countries with the largest mangrove area. This mangrove has been destructed by man for fuel production and construction of houses resulting in the death of the fish ecosystems that inhabited it; resolution of the quantity and quality of fish, coastal erosion and consequent invasion of the sea to the continent. The project solution is to repopulate the mangrove and to sustain its use.

Solution

The project will solve the problem of mangrove slaughter by planting 1000 new seedlings, installing 60 mangrove fish cages and making young fishermen in the community fish farmers for consumption and sale. In this way the community will protect the mangrove as it is a source of income, food and tourist attraction, improving nutrition, conserving marine and coastal biodiversity, raising income for families and protecting the coast from erosion.

Long-Term Impact

The project will improve the conservation of the mangrove which will now be a direct income of 30 families at the beginning of the project and will support 90 families at the end of the project (approximately 450 people). Other impacts will be improving the diet of the community members in Vilankulo, reducing coastal erosion, improving marine and coastal biodiversity and expanding the project's best practices to other areas for mangrove conservation.
