The Mangrove for the Future (MFF) Programme is a regional initiative that is being currently implemented in eight countries (India, Indonesia, Maldives, Pakistan, Seychelles, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam). The Programme has two objectives, viz., to strengthen the environmental sustainability of coastal development and to promote the investment in coastal ecosystem management. It provides a collaborative platform among the many different agencies, sectors and countries who are addressing challenges to coastal ecosystem and livelihood issues.
The MFF Seychelles National Coordinating Body composed of Government Departments, NGOs, national authorities and individual as members provides overall ICZM guidance and technical oversight to the MFF Seychelles component.
