On Tuesday, November 26, EcoViva and the Mangrove Association will participate in a national forum on the “Inclusive Conservation and Restoration of Mangroves in El Salvador.” The forum will highlight our work to pioneer the adoption of Ecological Mangrove Restoration and the Mangrove Association’s model of community conservation, identified as a Local Sustainable Use Plan. 150 people are invited to this national event in San Salvador.
This innovation in coastal resource management presents opportunities, as well as challenges, for government and non-government actors to confront together, as the Salvadoran Ministry of the Environment seeks to replicate the Mangrove Association’s framework on a national scale. Tomorrow’s event will serve to discuss these opportunities and challenges, and will feature both EcoViva and the Mangrove Association as main contributors.
The fact sheet below, written in Spanish, contains important information about the Local Sustainable Use Plan (PLAS) and will be distributed at the forum.
