Connecting Stakeholders to Boost
Sustainable Development

1st round table of the Scientific Committee of the LIFE Adapt'Island project

Pilot4DEV attended the first rountable of the Scientific Committee of the LIFE Adapt'Island project financed by the LIFE Programme.

Through this meeting, the LIFE Adapt'Island project team and Pilot4DEV were able to meet and discuss with highly specialized experts in marine ecology, mangroves, and the adaptation of eco systems as well as a member of the IPCC specialized in the adaptation of small islands to climate change.

As we all know, marine and coastal ecosystems such as mangroves, seagrass beds and coral reefs are invaluable in dampening the catastrophic effects of cyclonic events and climate change. 

Among its chief aims, the project LIFE Adapt Island aims to protect, rehabilitate and manage the following species in Guadeloupe:

  • 80,000 m² of mangroves (10,000 seedlings)
  • 45,000 m² of seagrass beds (cultivation of 5,000 seeds)
  • 45,000 m² of corals (15,000 specimens)

In turn, these actions could provide more protection for the coastal areas and the island itself as well and make it more resilient in the long run as Climate Change becomes more prevalent. Eco-moorings will be developed at a larger scale to remove pressure from the eco systems.
