Bringing back the mangroves in Gambia: this video gives a clear picture of how important mangroves were to this Gambian community and how they are trying to recover them in a true grassroots effort that also includes bee-keeping, education and different measures to improve living standards and socio-economic opportunities. This effort is coordinated by the Sankandi Youth Development Association - SYDA, a Gambian community group and our platform member. Source: Facebook page of SYDA
