Mangroves & Markets: final workshop on results and lessons learned


For the past three years, IUCN and SNV Netherlands Development Organization have been implementing Mangroves & Markets, a project financed by BMUB, the German Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources, Building, and Nuclear Safety, to support mangrove conservation in Ca Mau through the expansion of certified organic shrimp farming that links a premium payment to maintaining 50% mangrove cover.

A web piece on the final workshop of phase one was recently published by IUCN here.

SNV is working with BMUB and partners on the next phase of the project, which aims to scale up this integrated mangrove-shrimp model across the Mekong Delta.
