In Sumatra, villagers reconnect with the benefits of mangroves

During the audit mission of our two projects located in Sumatra in October 2022, we went to meet those who live off the mangrove and who work together to restore it. In the field, villagers are quick to share their stories with us. We have collected the stories of their greatest successes in rehabilitating the mangrove at the heart of their daily lives.

Regenerative projects to restore Sumatra's mangroves

Reforest'Action's involvement in Indonesia dates back to 2017. With the aim of restoring and extending the native mangrove on the island of Sumatra in order to protect its coastline and secure the economic activities linked to it, a sustainable partnership was established that year with the local NGO Yagasu. Since the autumn of 2021, Reforest'Action has extended its range of activities by financing a second mangrove restoration project in Sumatra, designed to last three years and carried out by the NGO Yakopi.

The regenerated mangrove of Sumatra

On the Indonesian island of Sumatra, mangroves are a source of life, natural resources and economic activity for local communities. Threatened by industrial palm oil production, intensive aquaculture and charcoal exports, this forest ecosystem between land and sea is disappearing. To restore the mangrove in North Sumatra and allow it to once again realise its wide range of environmental and socio-economic benefits, Reforest'Action is funding two regenerative projects that will have helped to reconstitute nearly 900 hectares of mangrove since 2017 and by 2024. Discover the report of our mission in the field, meeting our project leaders and the people who contribute to them on a daily basis.
