How do Black women fishing communities in Ecuador and Madagascar manage mangrove habitats and mitigate climate change?
I'm studying the resilient ways of ILK (indigenous and local knowledge) eco-governance of mangrove habitats by black women fishing communities in Northern Ecuador and Madagascar. Both countries host some of the tallest and largest mangrove ecosystems in the world, vital for mitigating climate change. Yet, climate change, overfishing (China) and aquaculture present enormous threats to their capacity of reproducing maritime species, guarded by Black communities, and thus our world climate.
