The ProjectThrough this project, YADESA ACEH aims to address some of these issues by planting 45,000 mangrove seedlings in the Lam Guron area. 80 people will be trained by an expert in mangrove establishment and care, and will in turn supervise 468 families involved in the project. The community has offered up their own private lands in tidal areas to become community land planted with mangroves. Further inland, 400 fruit trees will be planted as a source of income.
2018 Update: Involving in-class learning and outdoor teaching, the project is continuing by involving the younger community members in learning about mangrove lifecycles the effects of heat and how mangroves can reduce that. 35,000 mangrove saplings will be planted adjacent to those planted last year over 5.22 hectares
