Building shoreline resilience of Timor Leste to protect local communities and their livelihoods project fact sheet

As mangroves are a vital natural defense to the impacts of climate change, extensive mangroves and coastal wetlands ecosystem protection and restoration interventions will be implemented while strengthening alternative livelihoods options and integrated approaches to coastal adaptation to protect the coastal communities and productive lands.  Public awareness raising about the important role of coastal ecosystems in shoreline protection and climate change adaptation and mitigation is an integral part of the programme.
