By: Lalao Aigrette
Organisation: Blue Ventures
Location: Andavadoaka, Madagascar
Summary: Blue Ventures is employing a participatory monitoring and management approach as a solution to address degradation and deforestation of mangroves in Bay of Assassins, in the south of the Velondriake Locally Managed Marine Area (LMMA). This approach uses the generation of carbon credits, which can in turn generate sustainable financing to both residents of the Bay of Assassin and the Velondriake Management committee.
