In recent decades, the extent of mangrove forests globally has been dramatically reduced, in part due to the growth of shrimp farming. Nevertheless, as the primary source of income in mangrove regions, shrimp farming can significantly enhance the preservation and restoration of mangroves if appropriately and sustainably managed.
Sustainable aquaculture practices help to minimize the negative impacts of shrimp farming on the environment, such as water pollution, loss of mangrove forests, and impacts on biodiversity. It can also improve product quality, food safety, and market access to the social and economic benefit for coastal communities.
We are honored to be invited to Dialogue Forum for Mangroves and Sustainable Aquaculture hosted by KfW and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), partnering with KfW. Our Chief of Staff, Bernard Chevalier, will introduce our solutions and contribute to the discussion of linking extensive shrimp aquaculture with the voluntary carbon offsets market.
This dialogue forum is held offline in Frankfurt, Germany, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (GMT +1). For more information, please visit: https://lnkd.in/gg9X7J7D
