Earlier this year we reported on the success of a number of mangrove projects we helped to fund through a grant received from the Commonwealth@70 Committee. The funds enabled us to launch our special issue journal on Mangroves and support projects in Fiji, Samoa, India, Malaysia, the Gambia and the Maldives. The latter has now released its Maldives Mangrove Project Report.
The team in the Maldives have now produced a highly informative report with details of the project area and the activities undertaken in the mangrove project. The report is entitled “#SaveNeykurendhooKandoofaa” which refers to the area where mangrove protection and restoration is being targeted and the effective hashtag has been used throughout the project on formal documents, social media messaging and campaign materials.
The report includes a full breakdown of the activities undertaken including meetings, field visits and data collection, outcomes, ways forward and an important array of project photographs that capture aspects of the Maldives mangrove project throughout. An excerpt of the introduction can be seen below while the full report can be downloaded here.
