RISK Award Vietnam -
The journey to a more resilient coastline
An interim report
Mangrove nursery survived the floods
New cooperations supporting the nursery
Towards the end of the RISK Award funding period, CSRD is looking for ways to sustain the project. One promising approach is to attract funding from private sector companies who are looking for ways to invest CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) budgets.
CSRD is successful with this strategy. Last year, The Cotswold Company, United Kingdom, funded 15,000 externally bought seedlings. There are encouraging news: Two further companies have agreed to support the nursery and the mangroves project in Huế, Vietnam in 2023. For example, the Japanese restaurant chain ‘Mori’ is investing in the production of a new cycle of about 10,000 seedlings. 5,000 plants will be acquired from the project nursery and planted at the coast already this month. Further mangrove plantings will take place during the summer months.
