    Description of the project: This initiative enhances women’s place in Togo’s fishing sector while conserving endangered mangroves, through the introduction of a new technique mastered by women. Across 230 villages, 1,750 women have been trained to master a new fishing technique using ropes and bait tied to mangrove trees, instead of nets. This practice enables women to stay closer to home and fish during the day, while safeguarding mangroves from being cut. Children’s nutrition has been improved via the inclusion of fish in their diet.

    According to this video, Bangladesh's location makes it one of the most vulnerable countries in the world to environmental disasters. Its giant network of rivers and vast low-lying flood plains make it both fertile and subject to erosion from flood, drought and storms. Protective coastal greenbelts, in the form of natural vegetation, can make the difference between life and death during severe weather. Mangrove forests are critical to this necessary defence.

    Objective

    Climate change is expected to alter existing coastal habitats in Grenada, jeopardizing the island's mangroves, such as through the conversion of basin mangroves to fringe habitats as storm surges open barrier beaches, increasing tidal action and flood duration.

    Likewise, incremental sea level rise and storm overwash can lead to increased salinity within coastal ponds, backwaters, and estuaries.

    Each of these processes, acting alone or in concert, can greatly affect colonization by all mangrove species that occur in the region.

    Objective

    As part of its technology transfer in Cote D’Ivoire, the CTCN helped to design and set-up an environmental information system with a focus on climate change. The system will monitor and evaluate national promotion policies for energy efficiency and renewable energy within industrial and transport sectors that are adapted to the needs of key stakeholders.
