The lives of Lamu’s communities are closely intertwined with mangroves with about 60% of these magnificent and carbon rich ecosystems found in this historically and culturally rich archipelago. As the degraded areas grow due to various causes and drivers, there have been concerted efforts to restore mangroves. What is crucial in these efforts is that the coastal communities remain the key to managing, conserving and restoring these precious natural resources.
