Since 2003, we have successfully carried out compensatory mitigation projects for a range of coastal developments (such as reclamation and port development), where impacts to coastal habitats were deemed unavoidable.
Tropical coastal habitats are among the most complex and biologically diverse ecosystems on earth. Unfortunately, coastal habitats around the world continue to decline due to local pressures such as over-exploitation, coastal development and pollution. The threat level is heightened when combined with climate change and rising sea levels.
Compensatory mitigation refers to a range of active measures such as restoration, establishment, enhancement, and in some circumstances preservation of coastal resources to offset unavoidable adverse impacts.
To meet the needs of our clients in a range of industries, we develop and provide robust and fully customisable solutions including coral reef transplantation and long-term habitat monitoring, among others.
When properly designed and executed, compensatory habitat mitigation efforts can be very effective in restoring, re-establishing and rehabilitating various coastal habitat types like mangrove forests.
