Challenge

Odisha coast, India is considered amongst the world's most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change induced natural disasters. The combined effects of sea-level rise, increased frequency and intensity of cyclones, floods, sea erosion, and salinity intrusion pose a serious threat and affect hundreds of millions of vulnerable people. The only support and refuge from these threats is restoring and surviving mangroves in Odisha.

Solution

The project will promote 'CMEMR (Community Managed Ecological Mangrove Restoration)' method, an economical and efficient approach to mangrove restoration that follows basic natural processes. This well-considered unique model directly engages local community participation and long-term, sustainable and innovative solution to restore degraded mangrove loss. The goal is to restore 10000 mangroves trees in 5 vulnerable villages of Odisha, India.

Long-Term Impact

The restored mangroves will help to improve the fish catch by enhancing fish breeding grounds and habitat for various aquatic species. Around 200 families will benefits from fishing. The long term environmental benefit from restored mangroves includes protection of 5000 people from cyclones, sea level rise, Tsunami and prevention of soil erosion. The restored mangroves will sequester more carbon and act as a carbon sink and thereby play a role in preventing CO2 increase in the atmosphere.
