The film provides an insight into the project titled "Conservation and Sustainable Management of Coastal and Marine Protected Areas (CMPA)." The main objective of the CMPA project is to show ways and means to improve the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity along the coast. Taking into consideration the economic importance of the coastal zone for large segments of the population the project’s approach is people‐centred, thus ensuring the acceptance of conservation by those directly affected.
The film was made under the project titled ‘Conservation and Sustainable Management of Coastal and Marine Protected Areas (CMPA)’ of the Indo-German Biodiversity Programme. The CMPA Project is commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), under the International Climate Initiative (IKI). It is implemented by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC), Government of India, and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of BMUB.
