Mangroves and Markets

In Viet Nam, shrimp farming is a vital economic sector, but also the leading cause of mangrove loss. The sustainability of the shrimp sector and the conservation of mangroves are therefore both national priorities.

The Mangroves and Markets (MAM2) project aims at developing coastal landscapes, which support mangrove conservation and enhance the livelihoods and resilience of smallholder shrimp farmers. It supports a wide range of actors along the shrimp value chain such as hatcheries, smallholder farmers, wholesalers, processing companies and markets and strengthens their linkages.
