About the project

The project was launched on September 20, 2016 with support from the Canada Fund for Local Initiative (CFLI),  at the Good Shepherd Palace Auditorium in Winneba. The all-inclusive community-based project, empowered two communities (Woarabeba and Nsuakyir) especially women to sustainably manage their own mangrove resources resulting in improved rural livelihoods. The project activities included the promotion of sustainable multiple land use approach for mangrove ecosystems, use of energy efficient “Chorkor” Fish Smoking Kilns, capacity building of women groups in small business marketing and replanting of degraded mangrove stands.
