Climate Resilient & Community Driven Mangrove Afforestation Programme in Sri Lanka – VCS3357
The project includes restoration of degraded mangrove habitats through the planting of 4,500,000 mangrove seedlings in discrete parcels of land on a total area of 1000 hectares across the island of Sri Lanka. The objective of this project is to initiate a long-term community-based conservation and management programme to increase the extent of tropical mangrove forests and local biodiversity in Sri Lanka. This project will also provide forest goods and services to the local community members in a sustainable manner.
On offer is 50% of the carbon output of the first 500 ha, that was planted in 2021/2022. Between the start and the issuance of 2034, this volume is estimated to be around 115.000 VCUs.
