Project Description
Support the creation of a replicable model for mangrove ecosystem management that engages stakeholders and integrates both ecological and economic measures for valuing and enhancing the resilience of mangrove forest natural capital and its underlying biodiversity. An integrated conservation and management approach will be piloted in Alvarado Lagoon System (ALS), Veracruz. The ALS is inhabited by more than 50,000 people, including indigenous communities, dependent on mangroves for subsistence, income, and cultural uses, among other ecosystem services.The management approach will be tested through an innovation platform consisting of a NatureServe, Pronatura Veracruz and Conservation Strategy Fund (CSF) collaboration. The approach will be tested in La Mojarra Ejido, where land is collectively managed and, thus, the local population faces substantial ecosystem management complexity. Stakeholders will be integrated into ecological, socioeconomic, and socioecological assessments and project activities will culminate in mangrove management planning. Based on the experience, a management model will be developed, detailing stakeholder-integrated processes. The model will guide government agencies and other institutions in LAC in developing and implementing sustainable management plans with their own stakeholders.
