WCF Signs MOU with DMCR for Restoration and Conservation Activities in Thailand

On Tuesday 13th June 2023, Worldview Climate Foundation in Thailand was invited to sign an MOU with Thailand’s Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) to further develop Blue Carbon opportunities in support of communities and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

WIF is inspired by their shared mission to manage marine and coastal resources, with a focus on conservation and restoration of degraded areas. This agreement is a commitment to restore, protect and conserve marine and coastal resources, as well as developing knowledge about Blue Carbon by supporting education institutions and promoting research and development projects.

Projects will empower coastal communities through sustainable economic development, creating jobs and income through activities such as increasing the planting, restoration and conservation of mangrove forests and other marine and coastal resources. This will both reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect coastal areas from the increased erosion and natural disaster-related destruction that has intensified from climate change.

WIF aims to support this partnership between WCF and DMCR by providing its expertise on mangrove restoration and livelihood-focused Blue Carbon project development, based on experience of planting 100 million mangrove trees, storing over 50 million tons CO2. Supporting development of premium Blue Carbon projects in Thailand will be a great step for WIF in scaling its climate action in support of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement.
