The ecosystem of mangroves is the largest oxygen supplier on earth, along with tropical rainforests and coral reefs. The mangrove forests are also home to numerous plant and animal species. More than 95% of the food that can be extracted from the sea is produced in the mangroves.
However, the mangrove forests in Sofala, Mozambique, are subject to an ever-increasing threat (including fire, deforestation, overfishing, etc.). Due to the destruction of the mangrove population, the natural nutrient cycle is mixed, soils are increasingly sediment and erosion-threatened, and a large part of the regional animal and plant life is already threatened with extinction. As a result of the loss of the mangrove forests, many important food sources and a large number of traditional medical plants are also lost to the inhabitants. The survival of many populations on the coastal areas of Sofala therefore depends to a large extent on the stability of the mangrove forests.
The project promotes a holistic and participatory management of the mangrove ecosystem along the coasts of Sofala, which contributes to food security and the protection of the environment in the province of Sofala. Sustainable agricultural practices and income support methods are also being implemented in line with the local mangrove forests in the project area.
