Restoring Marine Ecosystem Services by Rehabilitating Coral Reefs to Meet a Changing Climate Future
Coral reefs are the foundation of food security and coastal livelihoods in Mauritius and Seychelles. Both artisanal fisheries and the tourism industry are strongly associated with the amount of live hard coral cover Reefs in the Western Indian Ocean, as elsewhere, have suffered from negative human induced impacts, in addition to climate change associated coral bleaching which has caused extreme degradation.
The Adaptation Fund, through a grant of USD 10 000 000 is enabling the enhancement of food security and reduction of risks from natural disasters through the restoration of degraded reefs in Mauritius and Seychelles and knowledge management and sharing, training and sensitization to build regional capacity for sustainable reef restoration.
This project entails the establishment of coral farming and nursery facilities, the active restoration of degraded reefs, capacity building and knowledge exchange for long term sustainable coral reef restoration.
