TREE-PLANTING DRONES FOR RESTORING MANGROVES AND LIVELIHOODS
Bridging: Planet & Prosperity
Organization: BioCarbon Engineering
Project Duration: 18 months
Overview: BioCarbon Engineering will employ drone technology to accelerate community-driven mangrove restoration, reforesting depleted mangrove ecosystems in the fragile coastal regions of Myanmar, where more than 1 million hectares of forest have already been lost to rising sea levels. In the process of planting 1 billion mangrove trees each year, fish stocks will increase, a protective barrier against natural disasters will be restored and local economies will be bolstered, leading to a more stable balance between communities and their surrounding ecosystems.
