Protecting the coast of Guyana from coastal flooding

Preventing the loss of vital mangrove forests

Located in the Caribbean, much of Guyana’s population lives below sea level. With climate change causing higher sea water levels, the country has been facing increasingly frequent coastal flooding events. We developed an integrated management system to help Guyana combat the flooding using mangroves. In so doing, we enabled Guyana to protect its coast, businesses and citizens more effectively.
