Socio-ecological resilience of populations living around mangroves

Project: Research

Project Details


The specific objective of this research is to seek relevant indicators to measure the resilience of habitats and inhabitants - population, fauna and flora - of the mangrove ecosystem. A particular focus will be on the fisheries resource.
The study area is the Beninese coastline (West Africa). In Benin, the mangrove areas are rich in biodiversity and present an important resource for the populations living in the vicinity. They are facing important pressures due to an exploitation that is too often unsustainable, demographic growth and rural development.
