The Haidar El Ali Mangrove Initiative (HEAMI) plans to establish 2,000 ha of mangrove plantations in 2018 on currently degraded wetlands in the Sine Saloum and Casamance deltas, Senegal. Carbon dioxide will be removed from the atmosphere and stored in carbon pools within the project boundary through the photosynthesis of the planted trees.
The project is developed and implemented by Oceanium. Oceanium is a Senegalese NGO created in 1984 with years of expertise in the environmental conservation. Since 2006, Oceanium has developed reforestation activities with the collaboration of local communities in Senegal.
The project area is a degraded land without vegetation or with scattered mangrove trees in the intertidal zone.
This project advances the following United Nations Sustainability Development Goals:
