Fridays for Climate | Coastal Zone Management in Guyana

Fridays for Climate | Coastal Zone Management in Guyana


Approximately 90% of Guyana’s population lives on a narrow coastal strip that lies 0,5 to 1,0 metre below sea level. Climate change and sea level rise can impact communities such as severe storms and floodings that might become frequent. 💦

The EU GCCA+ programme supports coastal zone management through the Guyanese Mangrove Forest Restoration Project. 🌱 Daily, about 20 people are working to plant mangroves seedlings across the coast. Sea walls and breakwaters support the natural regeneration of mangroves and help prevent the loss of seedlings.

As well, the project seeks to promote alternative livelihoods in communities along the coast through the Mangrove Reserve Women Producers Group and provide mangrove education to young people. 👩🏾‍🌾
