The Training of Trainers (ToT) in Mangrove and Beach Forest Rehabilitation and Conservation was successfully delivered beginning in May 2015 to increase national capacity for effective mangrove protection and rehabilitation. Through this training the participants will acquire detailed understanding of the biology and ecology of mangrove and beach forest ecosystems, and enhance facilitation skills in conducting rehabilitation activities including species identification, nursery establishment, outplanting, monitoring, maintenance and community mobilization. A total of 176 mangrove practitioners from various institutions were trained since its inception.
