Communities have established mangrove A/R, SFM and Conservation areas and are competently managing these areas. 3. Communities are producing sustainable carbon and timber. 4. The carbon stocks and harvestable timber of the community mangroves have been measured and are being monitored. 5. The requirements for a forest carbon project that will generate carbon offsets are fulfilled.
