Project Summary:
Coastal communitiesin western Madagascar are earning income from the sale of carbon credits, charcoal and timber that they supply through mangrove reforestation and sustainable forest management, so enabling them to improve their livelihoods and conserve mangrove forests in the long term.
Project Outputs:
1. Communities have clear and uncontested land and user rights to their customary mangrove areas and give there Free Prior and Informed Consent to use these ares for a forest carbon project. 2. 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.
