EU GCCA+ Fridays for Climate | The importance of mangroves in Mozambique

 

In Mozambique, in the city of Moma, communities live traditionally from resources provided by the mangroves. 🌱 They provide wood for their homes, biofuel to cook their meals and are host to many species.

Crabs and shrimps reproduce in the mangrove forests. 🦀However, those resources are relentlessly disappearing due to deforestation.

Local communities that are conscious about the impact of global climate change, are repopulating where they are cutting. As a part of the solution, the species are preserved, and they can continue reaping the benefits as they always have. 👨🏿‍🌾
