Impact Story: Upscaling a successful carbon offset project in Vanga
In Vanga, there is a high quality mangrove forest that provides several ecosystem services directly to the community. Soon the forest will provide services to people living in other parts of the world as well. Vanga has been chosen as the site to launch a community led carbon offset project. SPACES researchers have collected baseline […]Read more
Perceptions of degradation of Ecosystem services in a estuarine zone, center of Mozambique – Eunice Ribeiro et al.(1.0 MB)
Coastal habitats such as mangroves and estuaries provide important ecosystem services for human communities. These habitats are also some of the most heavily exploited by humans and therefore threaten natural systems.

Mangrove structure and condition in two contrasting utilization patterns in Mozambique – Celia Macamo et al.(1.0 MB)
Mangroves provide important socio-ecological services to coastal communities, such as coastal line protection, fish, shrimp and crab fishery, provide domestic fuel and building material. If excessive, the extractive exploitation of mangrove resources can lead to substantial changes in the forest structure of mangrove forests, and can also impair the provision of ecological services. This study […]Read more
