We believe in sustainable development. Therefore, when Worldview restores a mangrove forest, we support the local communities too.
Half of the proceeds generated through carbon sequestration are used to help empower local vulnerable communities, wherein more than half of the families live below the poverty line. These coastal communities are exposed to the worst effects of climate change, and have experienced significant degradation of their natural resources and vital seafood supply as a result of mangrove forest degradation.
All of Worldview’s projects enable the upskilling of local workers to master planters, educating them about mangroves and creating jobs providing them with the income they need to thrive.
The restoration of the mangrove forests in these areas vastly improves the biodiversity, in turn redeveloping marine life feedstocks and increasing seafood supply by 50%.
Furthermore, Worldview partakes in livelihood projects aimed at empowering the youth in these communities. The Solar Aid Project distributes solar powered lights to all households in the local area, as well as micro solar energy projects for the community. These changes enable work to take place after sunset, vastly improving school performance as well as increasing the earning capabilities of their parents.
