Costa Rica-Benin: South-South mobilization to help mangroves (Replay)

Published on : 24/12/2020 – 11:28

Mangroves, these forests between sea and rivers are fabulous ecosystems. They are nurseries for fish, they protect coasts from erosion and natural disasters, they store more carbon than tropical forests and they are a tourist attraction.

Unfortunately, mangroves are among the ecosystems most threatened by population growth in the coastal zone, which leads to their overexploitation. Mexico, Benin and Costa Rica are working on pilot restoration sites. A South-South cooperation which will soon be of use to everyone!

A program produced with co-financing from the European Union.
