Green Coast 2 establishes 16 integrated coastal rehabilitation projects which demonstrate sustainable management solutions for coastal ecosystem degradation in Aceh & Nias.
Each of these projects offer tangible benefits to local livelihoods and links with improved natural resource management. Community groups receive financial capital which they manage as revolving funds to enable the group members to start small businesses such as fish farming and home industry. It is estimated that app. 17,000 people will benefit from the total 530 hectares restored coastal forest and from the strengthened natural buffer function.
