Issue 11 of the WIOMSA Magazine focusing on Ecosystem Restoration is out!

This issue focuses on restoring damaged coastal ecosystems and includes Nature Seychelles’ coral reef restoration project, which is celebrating 10years of action.

https://www.wiomsa.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/WIOMSA-Magazine-Issue-11_September2020.pdf and the Nairobi Convention have jointly produced two issues of the WIOMSA Magazine focusing on restoring damaged coastal ecosystems. The publication of this issue of the Magazine in 2020 is quite timely, coinciding with the start of the decade of ecosystem for which the United Nations has unequivocally reaffirmed that “restoring damaged ecosystems is an efficient and cost-effective way people can work with nature to address the most pressing challenges humanity is facing today”.

The case studies documented in Part 1 of this series showcase how much restoration work has been undertaken across the WIO Region in both the mainland and the Island states. From many of these case studies, bold lessons have been learnt for sharing within and even outside the region. These lessons include the adoption of innovative technologies.
