Reduction of vulnerability to coastal flooding through ecosystem-based adaptation in the south of Artemisa and Mayabeque provinces


Brief Description:
The project will rely on a combination of natural regeneration and artificial regeneration (planting) to achieve the recovery of structure, function and ecosystem services in mangroves and other associated coastal ecosystems along the 84 km long stretch of coastline between Punta Sucia and Punta Mora. This is an area particularly sensible to saline intrusion into its subterranean aquifers, which are vital for the irrigation of the coastal plains, which are some of the most productive agricultural in the country, and as a source of drinking water for the city of Havana. the mangroves of the area also have some of the lowest health indices in the western region of the country.

Se trata de una zona especialmente sensible a la intrusión salina en sus acuíferos subterráneos, vitales para el riego de los llanos costeros, unos de los agrícolas más productivos del país, y como fuente de agua potable para la ciudad de La Habana. los manglares de la zona también tienen algunos de los índices de salud más bajos de la región occidental del país.
