MFF India

Community consultation - review of mangrove restoration progress in Tamil Nadu, MFF India project.

MFF in India has focused particularly on improving the scientific knowledge base for Integrated Coastal Management and on managing coastal and marine biodiversity. National symposia supported by MFF have greatly contributed to increasing the knowledge of both mangrove and coral ecosystems.
