For the benefit of nature and people alike, this project worked to restore the mangrove forest and promote livelihood development. Using a community-based approach, local people were engaged in the restoration activities and reaped the benefits of the improved mangrove forest. Here in the Kalamboro estuary, a healthy mangrove forest provides habitat for important species of wildlife and resources for local communities. Fish are important from a livelihood perspective for local communities that rely heavily on fishing for their food and income. Those engaged in the project acquired new skills, important resources and higher incomes to care for their homes, send their children to school and experience a balanced diet.
