Mangroves and Nypa

Restoration and the Conjunctive Sustainable Management of Native Mangroves and Nypa palms in the Cross River Estuary of Nigeria

Mangrove/Nypa Twelfth Progress Report

The specific objective is to develop and implement the restoration and conjunctive sustainable management of native mangroves and Nypa palms at selected sites in Oron, Akwa Ibom State, in the Cross River Estuary of Nigeria which is to be sustained long after the project duration through carefully planned community buy-in, involvement and active participation.

Mangrove/Nypa Eleventh Progress Report

UNIDO is executing various transboundary international waters projects covering mostly Large Marine Ecosystems and River Basins in several regions of the world. The Guinea Current Large Marine Ecosystem (GCLME) Project is one of UNIDO’s portfolio of International Waters projects approved by GEF Council in November 2003 and the subsequent GEF CEO endorsement on 18 August 2004 of the full project proposal “Combating Living Resources depletion and Coastal Area Degradation in the Guinea Current Large Marine Ecosystem through Ecosystem-based Regional Actions” for the sixteen (16) countries of the GCLME.

Mangrove/Nypa Seventh Progress Report

This project activity involved the selective cutting of Nypa rhizomes and leaves only, to convert a plot of 0.5 ha of Nypa jungle neighbouring to the mangrove plantations into a “real Nypa plantation” in which younger plants of the same age are retained.

Mangrove/Nypa Sixth Progress Report

The result of this investigation supported the observation that “pruning” of the Nypa fronds by selective cutting and a reduction in the density of palms per hectare leads to improved productivity for a plantation. The average number of fruits per bunch and the average number of seeds both increased in our experimental Nypa plantation

Mangrove/Nypa Fifth Progress Report

The training exercise was limited to participants and unemployed youths from the host communities “Idua Assang”. There were requests for the participation of unemployed youths from neighboring clans and villages during the demonstrations and experimentation. These requests could be met by organizing more training exercises for mobilizing especially unemployed youths, some of who were very eager to be gainfully employed in the production of Souvenirs such as hats, baskets, and decorative brooms from Nypa leaves.

Mangrove/Nypa Fourth Progress Report

The Project Steering Committee learned from the experience of the Nigerian Conservation Foundation that clearing of a mature Nypa plantation would involve four stages of cutting and up-rooting at 14 days interval to ensure that new shoots are totally eliminated from a cleared forest. The first clearing is accompanied by burning of fronds, rhizomes, dead leaves, etc at a plot after allowing a sufficient period of time for effective sun-drying.
