Pari Community Mangrove and Reef Rehabilitation and Sustainable Livelihood Alternatives for women
Pari Community Mangrove and Reef Rehabilitation and Sustainable Livelihood Alternatives for women
The CBO led by women and located in Pari village, outside of Port Moresby was awarded a planning grant of USD$2000. Planning grant was successfully completed and a full proposal developed and submitted. The full proposal was tabled at the July 2014 SGP National Steering Committee meeting and a full Grant of US$47,500.00 was approved. The project titled Pari Community Mangrove & Reef Rehabilitation and Sustainable Livelihood Alternatives for Women is funded under the SIDS-CBA allocation. The project will contribute towards improving the degraded coastline covering an area of six (6) square kilometres. The immediate threat identified for redress is human attitude and demand for wood given the value of mangrove for building and cooking. The coastline will be regarded as a community conservation area along the coastline of Pari Village, a Motuan village within the vicinity of Port Moresby. This is a women lead initiative whose work would be gender inclusive, in partnership with local group representing the people living with disability network and local government councils to conduct awareness, rehabilitate degraded mangrove coastlines, develop and carry out waste disposal awareness and build community and local school children’s capacity on ecosystem significance of mangroves and contribution to maintaining coastline ecosystems.
