Description

WIF works with local communities to reforest and conserve mangrove forests in Myanmar and across the Bay of Bengal. Their mission is to plant one billion mangrove trees mitigating 500 million tonnes CO2. In addition, to improve and empower coastal communities to a better life while promoting bio-diversity and protecting endangered species, Worldview’s research project in Myanmar in cooperation with Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry, Pathein University and Myek University, aims at a national plan for restoration of mangrove forests in all coastal areas of the country. The project is funded by Letten Foundation, Norway. Worldview is also following up mangrove projects in Gambia and other countries, as part of its global efforts in adaptation to climate change
