Author: Timor-Leste CTI NCC

The proposed rehabilitation of mangrove will involve coastal communities in the planting of seeds and re-planting in the designated plots. It aims to enhance the protection and stabilization of the coastline; protect habitat for fish species and other marine biota; provide a future source of livelihood (from sustainable harvesting of animal and plant species) and provide a location for education and awareness of climate change impacts in conjunction with the planned
formation of Center for Climate Information.
