Its interest in blue carbon with mangrove restoration correspond with WIFs core values.

SCG has a big presence in ASEAN countries. This may open up for mangrove restoration projects in Vietnam, Indonesia and other countries in cooperation with WCF's regional base in Thailand. WIF's additional targets in 2022 is to start a virtual mangrove university for global knowledge sharing and skills development to improve quality mangrove projects with 96% high survival rates of plants and other blue carbon projects in protection of sea grass meadows and planting/harvesting of sea weeds mitigating CO2 climate gases. It is also relevant to WIF's new project in providing assistance to the 34 Small Sate Islands with mangrove restoration in protection from sea level rise.
