Mangrove Rehabilitation to Get $5.54m Japanese Grant

Myanmar’s Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry in cooperation with Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has launched a Mangrove Rehabilitation Project to enhance disaster prevention in the Ayeyarwady delta region in Myanmar.

JICA will provide $5.54 million for the project through its Grant Aid program, according to an agreement signed between the government and JICA in 2012.

The project site is located in the Kadonkani Reserve Forest, Bogale township in Ayeyarwady region, and will be implemented in four years until October 2017.

The project includes building mangrove forest plantation, constructing a cyclone-shelter with watch tower, providing support materials and drawing a mangrove management plan as well as surveying aquatic species to analyse the impact of the project on species diversity and population.
