According to WB website, storms and rising sea levels are threatening the livelihood of some 20,000 poor fishing households in Northern Samar in the Philippines. Fishponds in a vast mangrove forest that once protected the villages from storms have been abandoned. With a DM grant, the Trowel Development Foundation will replant mangroves and set up a value-chain system to fatten and market tie-crabs. This will raise local incomes, and build the capacity of fishing villages to adapt to climate change.
