THE INITIATIVE

Mangroves play a major role in mitigating and regulating the impacts of climate change. They act as a bulwark against violent storms and contribute to carbon sequestration and storage. They are also vital for sustaining local communities, particularly in terms of providing habitats and nurseries for species used in local economic development.

For years, the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM) has been supporting projects that strengthen coastal resilience and help coastal communities adapt to climate change. Through its Mangroves Initiative, the FFEM aims to develop experience-sharing between projects on protecting and regenerating mangrove coasts, while adding to scientific and technological knowledge, and leveraging and promoting project outcomes.
