Emerald Sea, Madagascar
Preservation of natural and landscape heritage
ISLANDS FUND: €45,000
PARTNERS: University of Diego
THEMES: Ecosystems conservation
The University of Diego has started mapping coastal-marine ecosystems to establish an initial state of the environment, and identify the pressures and challenges on the site. The final objective is to provide management and development recommendations, in particular in view of the creation of a marine protected area in the Emerald Sea. The project will enable the Island Committee of the Emerald Sea to improve the site agents’ autonomy and monitoring capacities, thanks to the purchase of an adapted motor boat and safety tools, as well as a staff monitoring and safety training.
