Revitalizing Demak's coasts through community action and local government support
A project in Demak Regency in Indonesia has harnessed the enthusiasm of community groups and the local government in nurturing mangroves in the coastal village of Wedung, showing how small grant projects can have broad and lasting impacts.
How is gender equality integrated into Mangroves for the Future projects?
As part of its resilience approach to coastal management, MFF strongly focuses on gender responsive project planning. All members of the MFF implementation team are expected to be knowledgeable and skilled in the gender integrated planning process in order to be able to facilitate that process with national partners on the ground. This knowledge will ensure that project monitoring and reporting connect to gender responsive planning and programme implementation.
