(*) From Climate change scenario of 2009 by Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment

This place here has been being affected by many devastating natural disasters like drought, coastal erosion, saltwater intrusion and especially delta subsidence.

Thống kê

0,96cm/year

is the average speed of the land subsidence here, 3 times faster than the annual sea level rise.

562

is the number of landslides on riverbanks and coasts due to subsidence in the Mekong Delta, with a total length up to 786 km.

2,5
milions m3/day

is the total amount of underwater the locals exploit for their life - one of the main causes of land subsidence.

Planting forests,
reinforcing Sóc Trăng

Sóc Trăng right now needs a sturdy “green fence” in order to “firmly” prevent landslides and waves. The Mekong Delta needs solutions to respond to climate change for a sustainable future.

“Mangrove forests absorb a large amount of carbon released from industrial activities, balancing some of the greenhouse gas emissions.”

- Dr. Lê Phát Quới, Center of Environmental Science and
Economy, Advisory Council Sống Foundation shared.

Therefore,

Planting mangrove forests

is Green Happiness’s choice to cover
Sóc Trăng in green and protect this land from storms and landslides.

Why is mangrove forest so important?

Protecting the coast,
preventing landslides

Compared to usual dykes, mangrove forests are 5 times better at protecting the coast thanks to interlaced root system dissipating wave energy and accreting alluvion.

Bảo vệ bờ biển, phòng chống sạt lở

Water purging

2-5 ha of mangrove forest can treat the wastewater of 1 ha of aquaculture, thus helping to reduce environmental pollution.

Lọc nước

Enhancing ecological diversity and people's livelihood

Over 3.000 species of fish are found in the mangrove forest ecosystem, therefore creating aquatic resources and livelihoods for locals.

Tăng cường đa dạng sinh thái và sinh kế cho người dân

Balancing the climate

Mangrove forest can store C02 3-5 times higher than tropical forest. Therefore, it creates an ecological buffer to prevent saltwater intrusion, reducing the impact of climate change.

In order to help young trees stick to the coast and grow best in saline environments, Green Happiness and staff have carefully executed each stage of planting and taking care of the forest.

The story
of Green

“Green army”
in the mudflat “battlefield”

Two species of mangrove trees have been the vanguards in the "sea encroachment campaign” with Green Happiness through the planting seasons in Vĩnh Châu and Sóc Trăng alluvion.

Sonneratia alba

Has good resistance, helps break waves, keep alluvial soil, protects the land area and prevents landslides.

White vinegar

Sticks well no matter how harsh the natural disasters are such as storms or landslides. Its breathing roots have a special structure which can accumulate and form a thick sediment layer - an ideal habitat and spawning ground for many aquatic species.

Together with Sprouts, grow Avicennia

"Together with Sprouts, grow Avicennia" is part of Green Happiness's series of activities to nurture the love of nature and educate children on forest protection in Vĩnh Châu, Sóc Trăng.

Children will follow their grandfathers, fathers, uncles to the mudflats, sow the green shoots and remove the garbage bags for the big trees, contributing to the protection of the forests for their homeland.

To date, “Planting Forests, Reinforcing Land” has reached:

85%

is the tree’s survival rate per 10 ha of alluvial area (October 2022).

81.400 trees
