WHY DOES IT MATTER?

The RUMAKI Plus Seascape comprises the coastline and adjacent marine territorial waters of the entire coast of the United Republic of Tanzania. This is a 1,420 km-long coastline, on which over 8 million people, some 25 % of the nation’s population, depend to varying degrees for their livelihood.
The natural resources and habitats below the high tide mark i.e. intertidal and subtidal marine areas including mangrove forests, coral reefs and marine fishing grounds, are the main important resources used by these communities and the focus of RUMAKI Plus which also includes offshore interventions in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) (223,000 km2).
