The project is studying how to strengthen coastal habitat resilience against coastal erosion by combining terrestrial and marine ecosystem-based protection. In addition, the project will identify and evaluate ecosystem services provided by seagrass meadows for humans and improved biodiversity in WIO region. The end product is to come up with best practices for seagrass restoration with a view of providing technical guidelines on how seagrass can be restored and inform evidence-based decision making for sustainable coastal management.
