Enhancing the ecological integrity of the coastline of Dago and the community’s climate resilience and improve the lives of 5,000 men, women and children.
Short term, mangroves will be restored, allowing for more spawning grounds and the growth of fish. This will revive jobs lost. The planting of mangroves along the coastal line in Gomoa West District in the Central Region of Ghana will restore the mangrove’s biodiversity and enhance the community’s livelihood.
With the donations through iMPACT direct, ACEC will purchase propagules (i.e. mangrove seedlings) and train nursery workers to grow the seedlings. This requires a budget of GHS 42,000 (or €5,787).
This is part of a bigger project in which ACEC supports planting of tree species along lagoons and rivers and provides conservation education and public awareness campaigns as well as community training on sustainable natural resource conservation and management.
