Evaluation and Planning of Mangrove Restoration Programs in Sedari Village of Kerawang District, West Java: Contribution of PHE-ONWJ Coastal Development Programs
The authors described a mangrove restoration project in Sedari Village of Kerawang District, West Java. According to the article, the main cause for mangrove degradation in this region is due to brackish water fish ponds called “tambak”. The authors described and evaluated the first four of six project phases through mangrove survivability and soil structure.
Conclusions & Takeaways
The study found that the the first phase survival rate was 14.3% while phase's 2 to 4 had a survival rate of 100%. The authors argue that this disparity is due to a lack of coordination with the local government and lack of protecting seedlings in the first phase. Moreover, the latter phases were successful due to extensive community involvement. Phase 5 and 6 occurred after the study and thus will be examined seperately.
