Maximize Benefits

BCT works with coastal communities and partners to ensure maximum benefits are obtained from the mangrove ecosystems. This includes mangrove restoration, identification of sustainable livelihood activities in the mangrove ecosystems like beekeeping, and carbon credit projects for the benefit of the local communities. Furthermore, BCT continues to learn and monitor these activities, for instance, collecting data on the newly planted mangroves, increase and colonization by the associated biodiversity, and improved income of the surrounding communities. These benefits are viewed from socioecological perspectives considering both the ecological and societal benefits for sustainability, which are monitored and improved overtime.
